Oakley, associate professor of psychiatric medicine, shared the stage with Oscar-winning actress Patty Duke during the annual meeting of the American Academy of Family Physicians in San Diego in September 2008. Oakley was invited to give the plenary session address at the scientific assembly. He presented “The Face of Disease: Diagnosis and Treatment of Bipolar Disorders.” Duke told her story of bipolar disorder and her long road to recovery. The two then conducted a joint panel discussion with attendees about living with and treating bipolar illness. (Contributed photo)
