Join Active Minds as we examine the story of Russia under the influence of Vladimir Putin, including Russia’s involvement in the current situation in Ukraine.

Award-winning journalist Jody Berger will discuss and sign her important new book Misdiagnosed: One Woman’s Tour of—and Escape from—Healthcareland ($14.99 Sourcebooks). At 43, Jody Berger saw a doctor about a minor tingling in her hands and feet. One MRI later, she was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis and told to pick a drug and resign herself to a slow death. Jody started asking questions, and a year and countless tests later she discovered that “M.S.” was nothing more than a gluten allergy. Now healthier than ever, Jody shares her story and offers practical tips on navigating the healthcare world. Can’t make it to the signing?
