The 2022-2023 Neilly Author Series season is dedicated to the 75th anniversary of the University of Rochester's Department of Psychiatry. The books highlighted in this year's Neilly talks support key concepts in the biopsychosocial model—developed by University professors George Engel and John Romano to serve as the cornerstone of psychiatric education and training.
The Neilly Author Series was established in 2001 to invite a diverse range of authors to Rochester to discuss their recent publications, writing processes, and the ideas presented in their work. This series is made possible by the Andrew H. and Janet Dayton Neilly Endowed Fund.
