Aging and Wisdom
Dr. Dilip V. Jeste, MD, Director of the Global Research Network on Social Determinants of Mental Health, and former Senior Associate Dean for Healthy Aging at UCSD.
He was mentored at KEM by Drs. N.S. Vahia and D.R. Doongaji and made a mark for himself in the US, achieving many laurels.
He was the first Asian-American elected to serve as President of American Psychiatric Association (APA) in its 175-year history, and the first psychiatrist of Indian origin to be elected to the prestigious National Academy of Medicine.
Please find a link, about the Jeste-Thomas index, that will allow you to measure your own wisdom, encouraging you to read his book Wiser.
