Patients are profoundly affected by societies perception of their illnesses. So much so, that their own wellbeing can be at stake. Neha Kinariwalla is here to explain why this perception matters, and more importantly what we can do to change it. In this thought-provoking talk, Kinariwalla speaks of her journey through understanding stigma and what she is doing to reduce it. Equipped with destigmatizing theories of education and empathy, she presents The Humanology Project, a website devoted to destigmatizing illnesses [www.humanologyproject.org].

Neha Kinariwalla is an undergraduate student studying Sociology and International Studies at Stony Brook University. She is currently researching the psychosocial effects of epilepsy on marriages at Oxford University and Stony Brook Medical Center.
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
