Talk: Medicine, Literature & Life’s Third Act
Our tendency to reduce old age to its hardest moments becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy. Dr. Aronson will use stories from patient care and literature to illustrate how we can turn that around to benefit us all.
Dr. Louise Aronson is a leading geriatrician, writer, educator and professor of medicine at the University of California San Francisco and the author of the New York Times bestseller and Pulitzer Prize finalist "Elderhood: Redefining Aging, Transforming Medicine, and Reimagining Life."
The doors open at 5:30 and include a reception with light food and drinks.
Sponsored by the Maimonides Society of the Jewish Federation of Southern Arizona in loving memory of Cindy Wool – in conjunction with the University of Arizona College of Medicine – Tucson.
