Ronni Bennett at www.timegoesby.net has an exciting announcement that will interest ChangingAging.org readers:
I am pleased and excited that Dr. Thomas has agreed to become The TGB Geriatrician. Because there are already too few geriatricians in the U.S. and the number of elders will increase dramatically over the coming decades, I’m convinced that we ourselves must take more personal responsibility for our health by educating ourselves and working in collaboration with our physicians who may not have a lot of experience with elder medicine. Dr. Thomas is going to help us do that.
Beginning later this month, his column will appear twice monthly at Time Goes By covering such topics as the myths of aging, exercise, medications, supplements, adaptation to changes, how our bodies age, and our minds, and much more. And as long as you keep it to general topics and not your personal health problems, you will have an opportunity to suggest health issues Dr. Thomas might tackle for us.
This is an extraordinary opportunity for us to learn from one of the most knowledgeable, experienced and visionary aging experts in the world – and, a guy who really likes old people.
We’ll keep you posted as Bill’s column is published, and feel free to email your suggestions for general health topics you’d like Bill to discuss to firstname.lastname@example.org.
