Community Conversations: A Son’s Reflections on the PSP Journey (Webinar)

August 29, 2022 @ 4:00 pm – 5:00 pm
Virtual Event

Join Rafi Stern and Jessica Shurer for a conversation and Q&A on navigating the PSP journey as a carepartner. 

Rafi Stern did not envision splitting his weeks between Cornell Law School and New York City. Each week he would drive home to NYC from Ithaca to help care for his mother, Suzanne Wasserman. Wasserman was a well-known historian, professor, writer, and film director. Rafi was only in his mid-twenties when she received the diagnosis of PSP, and he never questioned his role in supporting his mother. Now, five years after her passing, Rafi wants to share his experience and reflections as a son of someone with PSP and a young carepartner, hoping to lend advice and support to families living with neurodegenerative diseases now.

This will be a live conversational-style webinar, moderated by Jessica Shurer, MSW, LCSW, Director of Clinical Affairs and Advocacy at CurePSP. There will be time at the end for Rafi to answer questions from viewers.
