Dr. Ian Dowbiggin, Professor of History at UPEI, has a lot of ideas. And when he has an idea, it often turns into a book. In this case, it’s a talk about a future book about the history of anxiety disorders.
Dr. Dowbiggin spoke at the May 26 Research Breakfast hosted by UPEI at the Rodd Charlottetown. His title: “Reasons to Panic? The history of anxiety disorders and its implications for the 21st Century”
