Dr. Oliver Sacks, NYT Bestselling Author, to Inspire and Marc Black, Award-winning Musician, to Perform at National Aphasia Association Benefit on April 1, NYC
Date:2/14/2008

NEW YORK, Feb. 14 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Dr. Oliver Sacks, neurologist, Columbia University professor and New York Times bestselling author, known for his neurological case studies in Awakenings, will share inspiring stories about the healing power of music for aphasics and others with brain trauma from his latest work: Musicophilia - Tales of Music and the Brain. Award-wining alternative musician and songwriter Marc Black, will perform, with the Marc Black Trio, music from his latest CD: Stroke of Genius, which was inspired by the poetry of a friend coping with aphasia after a stroke. They will appear at the Annual Spring Benefit of the National Aphasia Association (NAA) on Tuesday, April 1, 6 pm, at Comix, 353 West 14th Street, NYC. Proceeds will help support resources, education and services for people with aphasia and their families.

"We are extremely honored that two great talents such as Dr. Oliver Sacks and Marc Black are helping us raise awareness of aphasia -- the sudden inability to read, write, speak or understand speech -- usually after a stroke or other traumatic brain injury," says NAA Executive Director Ellayne S. Ganzfried, MS, CCC-SLP. "Over 1 million Americans are living with aphasia and there are over 200,000 new cases each year, yet very few people know about it until they or someone they love is devastated by this condition."

NAA is a consumer-focused, not-for-profit organization that was founded in 1987 as the first national organization dedicated to advocating for persons with aphasia and their families. NAA helps an estimated 100,000 families a year by providing free resources including: a national hotline (800-822-4622), Web site (http://www.aphasia.org) and a national registry of over 330 aphasia support groups in the US.

At the Annual Spring Benefit, NAA will honor Elliot J. Roth, MD, with the NAA Advocacy Award for his life-long work helping people with aph
