Renowned geriatrician to speak at Greenwich Library

Aging doesn’t begin when you get a Medicare Card — it begins at birth! Whether you’re 35, 55, 85 or beyond — come hear renowned Geriatrician Dr. Mark Lachs speak about the secrets of aging on Thursday, Oct. 8, from 7-9 p.m., in the Cole Auditorium.

What can you do to prevent late life frailty when you’re just a boomer? You’ll be surprised to learn how much your behavior at age 50 will impact how you will look and feel at age 90. If you’re already “older” or even caring for someone older, Dr. Lachs will describe how to interact with the healthcare system and other programs to assure the highest possible quality of life at any age.

Dr. Lachs is Co-chief of Geriatrics at NY Presbyterian Hospital and Director of Cornell’s Center for Aging Research. He has pioneered and authored a multitude of research studies and published extensively in the field of aging. He is the author of the bestselling book on aging, Treat Me, Not My Age.

This is the first in a series of complimentary distinguished speaker events focused on Successful Healthy Aging and Caregiving.
