Meet Our Keynote: Dr. David Baker

After earning rave reviews at the NAMI Montana education conference, David Baker, Ph.D, from Marquette University became a top candidate to speak at NAMI Southwestern Pennsylvania's 12th Annual Education Conference. A NAMI supporter, Dr. Baker enthusiastically agreed to keynote our conference Evidence for Hope: Why Research Should Matter To You on Saturday, April 21 at the Pittsburgh Airport Marriott. 

An associate professor at Marquette and founder of Promentis Pharmaceuticals, Dr. Baker will enlighten conference attendees about the major shift in research on mental illness. In an easy-to-understand and engaging way, Dr. Baker will summarize the past 40 years of neurological research and explain the major change that is taking place--a change that could make a world of difference in treatment and recovery for mental illness.

Highlighting one of his own research projects on schizophrenia, Dr. Baker will illustrate that the key to unlocking the answers to is in the approach.

By the end of his keynote presentation, the audience will understand the new movement taking place in medicine development and, perhaps more importantly, leave with a feeling of renewed hope and optimism that treatment works and recovery is possible.
