NEW YORK, May 2, 2016 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Global Medical Education (GME) is pleased to announce that Margaret Trudeau will present the Keynote Address at its Third Annual Mood Disorders Summit, to be held December 9 - 10, 2016, at the JW Marriott Scottsdale Camelback Inn, in Scottsdale, AZ.
Ms. Trudeau is a Canadian icon, celebrated both for her role in the public eye and as a respected mental-health issues advocate. From becoming a prime minister's wife at a young age, to the loss of both her son and her former husband, to living with bipolar disorder, Margaret tirelessly shares her personal stories to remind others of the importance of nurturing the body, mind, and spirit.
"We are delighted to have Ms. Trudeau share her story and experience with us," said Prakash Masand, M.D., Founder and CEO of Global Medical Education. "Hearing a patient's perspective is key for mental healthcare professionals, as it offers a unique lens through which we view mood disorders."
GME's Mood Disorders Summit is a very popular two-day annual conference, now in its third year, that explores state of the art diagnostic and therapeutic issues in patients with mood disorders. Hundreds of health care professionals come together to learn from the world's leading psychiatric experts and to hear from renowned patient advocates and speakers like Ms. Trudeau.
"Having mental health advocates, like Margaret, is not only essential in helping clinicians understand the reality of living with an illness," explained Dr. Masand. "It also helps to destigmatize psychiatric illnesses for the broader community. We applaud her work in sharing her story, and look forward to welcoming her to our stage."
