Art and dementia | Jessica Kay Ruhle | TEDxGreensboro

Connecting with loved ones who suffer dementia is increasingly difficult as the disease progresses. But programs that bring these individuals to art shows unexpected interactions and clarity. Ruhle is the Director of Education and Public Programs at the Duke University Nasher Museum of Art where she founded “Reflections,” a program for visitors with dementia and their care givers. She is a graduate of Davidson College with a masters from George Washington University. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at
