True Innovation “Theater”, at last! This presentation will draw upon the inherent awe of the arts to discuss creative thinking and its role in creating empathy for people suffering from myriad conditions and the need for science to find a cure. Actor, screenwriter, and director Ron Fassler, who has made his career in the arts while also raising a son who was diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), will share his theatrical and personal perspectives into theatrical arts that deal with social anxiety and ASD. He will be interviewed by Maria Scaros-Mercado, the executive director of a memory-care assisted living facility and board president of a dramatic program for patients and caretakers living with dementia.
