Albert Kim (P)

July 8, 2019

Albert Kim, parent, was featured in Town & Style on 07.08.19, in a story about his collaboration with Dr. Eric Leuthardt on a neuroscience-themed theater project: "There will be brains all over the stage in an upcoming production by Nine Network of Public Media. (Note: This is neither gory, nor an assemblage of nerdy Einstein wannabes.) BrainWorks: The Theatre of Neuroscience, a theatrical performance and future public television series, explores the wonders of the human brain by dramatizing real-life neurological cases to reveal the science behind Alzheimer’s disease, epilepsy, brain tumors and stroke. BrainWorks is a collaboration between Washington U. neurosurgeons Eric Leuthardt, M.D., and Albert Kim, M.D., Barnes-Jewish Hospital and Nine Network. It will run July 19-21 at the Loretto-Hilton Center in Webster Groves. What began in 2011 as an annual TED-style lecture series about advances in medicine became neuroscience theater, selling out multiple performances and introducing new ways for the great unwashed to understand what’s inside their skulls. Channel 9’s BrainWorks production, a one-hour special, won a regional Emmy in 2016. Drs. Leuthardt and Kim are hosts of the 'Brain Coffee' podcast."
