LECTURE — Living and Loving: Advice from the Oldest (and Wisest) Americans

The Commission on Aging, The Greenwich Library, At Home in Greenwich and Compass Care, LLC continue their sponsorship of the Distinguished Speaker Series on Successful Healthy Aging & Caregiving. The second talk, “Living and Loving: Advice from the Oldest (and Wisest) Americans,” will be presented by Dr.Karl A. Pillemer April 21, at 7 p.m., at The Greenwich Library.

Dr. Pillemer is a Professor of Human Development at Cornell University and Professor of Gerontology at the Weill Cornell Medical College. He is the founder and director of the Cornell Institute for Translational Research on Aging, a center that uses research to solve the practical problems of older people. An internationally renowned gerontologist, his research examines how people develop and change throughout their lives. He has authored five books, over 100 scientific publications, and speaks throughout the world on aging-related issues.

In a recent set of studies, Dr. Pillemer set out to learn what older people know about life that the rest of us don’t. This project led to the book: 30 Lessons for Living: Tried and True Advice from the Wisest Americans. His second book is entitled 30 Lessons for Loving: Advice from the Wisest Americans on Love, Relationships, and Marriage. Dr. Pillemer speaks nationally and internationally on the life-changing potential of advice from elders, and his work has received extensive media attention, including profiles on the PBS NewsHour, CBS This Morning, Fox and Friends, and many more.

Registration is recommended, but is not required (http://tinyurl.com/jt6hqwc) or (917) 633-6162.

The third Distinguished Speaker Series talk is set for the fall with the date still to be determined. The subject will be on Caregiving and our distinguished speaker will be Paula Span, writer for the New York Times and professor at the Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism.

As always, attendance at all talks in the Distinguished Speaker Series is free of any charge.
