Pills or No Pills, that is the Question: how best to improve the quality of life for seniors
September 14, 2021 at 5:30 pm – 6:30 pm

Featured Speaker: Dr. Camille Hunter, CEO of Coastal Geriatrics

This forum will be of interest to seniors, as well as their family members and care givers, in addressing such issues as:

  • Newer approaches to senior wellness
  • Inappropriate prescription use in the older population: when too many medications in combination become problematic
  • ‘Goals of care’ impact decisions about independent living, discussions with family about end-of-life issues (such as advanced directives), and issues of basic health maintenance such as mammograms or statins
  • Maximizing quality of life now: the importance of exercise, diet, and social contact

Given possible risks involved with the highly contagious Delta variant of Covid-19, we have decided to make this forum, like our previous ones, Zoomed. Please register here and we will send you a Zoom link shortly before the forum.
