Women's Health Series Examines Elder Care

The ORWH Women's Health Seminar Series continues the 1996-97 season with a look at "Elder Options and Care Giving," at 2 p.m. on Thursday, June 5, in Masur Auditorium, Bldg. 10. In addition to the seminar, an expo will be held from noon to 2 p.m. and from 4 to 5 p.m. in the Visitor Information Center.

Aging is a multidimensional process. People not only age biologically, but also face changes in living options, financial and legal obligations, and quantity and quality of interaction with their families. Dr. Maureen Edwards, coordinator of the Health Education Program, Montgomery College, will open the seminar with a focus on the problems and potential of the aging process. Marie Infante, an attorney at Powers, Pyles, Sutter & Verville, will discuss legal and management issues. Ellen Greenberg, director of information services for the Jewish Council for the Aging, will address choices in selecting services and programs for older people who choose to remain in their own home. Judy Kramer, a journalist for Gazette Newspapers, will wrap up the seminar with a discussion on how to avoid burnout. The seminar will close with a question-and-answer session.

The Women's Health Seminar Series is sponsored by the women's health seminar committee of the Office of Research on Women's Health. The next seminar, "Alzheimer's and Other Forms of Dementia," will be held Sept. 25. Admission is free and open to the public. Registration is not necessary. For more information, call 2-1770.
