This event is the latest in our member-led forums’ Art and Science of Well-Being series.

Louise Aronson has received numerous awards for her medical work, teaching, educational research and writing. In Elderhood: Redefining Medicine, Life, and Aging in America, Aronson urges a large-scale shift in society and medicine’s attitudes toward aging and offers a powerful roadmap for how we all approach old age. She shares anecdotes from her 25 years of caring for patients and her own experiences of getting older and watching her parents age. She also draws from history, science, literature and popular culture to offer hope about aging, medicine and humanity itself.
