Navigating Elderhood: What Matters Most to You with Sharon A. Levine, MD
Aging well requires self-examination and a plan. Join Dr. Sharon A. Levine in-person or by Zoom for a discussion on creating a roadmap for aging. Dr. Levine – geriatrician, educator and innovator – will provide a framework for thinking about aging and health focused on maintaining and maximizing your independence. She will also discuss how important defining what matters most to you is when it comes to making decisions about your health and for talking with the people who matter most so they know your wishes.
