Glendale Adventist Medical Center hosted a talk titled “My Stroke of Insight” at the Alex Theatre just as the clouds parted Monday evening.
The speaker was stroke survivor Jill Bolte Taylor, who was a neuroscientist working at Harvard University’s brain research center when she experienced a stroke. Taylor, a New York Times best-selling author, was recently chosen one of Time Magazine’s “100 Most Influential People in the World” for 2008.
The event is a precursor to Sunday’s Downtown Dash. Glendale residents on hand included a healthy contingent of Glendale Adventist employees including Chief Operating Officer Warren Tetz with wife, Luz Tetz, Chaplain Al Garcilazo, Neuro Registered Nurse J.P. Belmonte, Human Resources specialist Jodi Parrish and husband Tony Parrish.
