Brown Psychiatry Chair Talks about OCD July 10
Don't miss this chance to learn about how this disorder makes it hard for some people to function--and about new treatments that are being developed. We all know people with a "touch" of OCD--they have to have things arranged just so, they become anxious at the sight of trash or disorder, they keep going back to check the lock or the oven, things they do with the left foot have to be balanced by the right foot, or they simply make lists and label everything. What is it in the brain that makes people obsess over certain things? Dr. Rasmussen is one of the leading authorities in the country on this subject, and we are fortunate that he is interested in helping Block Island. Tuesday night at 7:00 at the community center.
