Behind the Headlines: Maintaining your Health and Managing the Cost
Atlanta (Vocus) April 28, 2009 -
Have you ever wondered how you will maintain a healthy lifestyle and have your health care and long-term care needs met? What do you do about financial costs associated with you and your spouse's future? Who do you turn to, as you get older to talk about these issues? A distinguished panel of health experts will discuss these questions and more at the Atlanta History Center from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. on May 18, 2009. The discussion, "Behind the Headlines: Maintaining your Health and Managing the Cost," will address health care policies and trends, maintaining well being, health risks and other topics of interest to the 60+ age group.
Discussion members include Ruthann Lacey, one of only five Certified Elder Law Attorneys in Georgia; Dr. Margaret White, Medical Director at Park Springs CCRC in Stone Mountain; Bill Benson, a former specialist in aging and health policy and current host of First Person, a weekly live interview program at the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington, D.C. and Nancy Morrison, Program Director for Sixty Plus Older Adult Services at Piedmont Hospital. Joan Carlson, Vice President of Quality Innovation and Culture for Isakson Living, will moderate the discussion.
Hosted by Peachtree Hills Place, a residential community offering a continuum of care in Buckhead for people ages 55 and older, the event is the third and final installment in a three-part series addressing issues that directly affect this demographic. Attendance is free, but registration is required for the panel discussion, which will be held in the Woodruff Auditorium of the Atlanta History Center at 130 West Paces Ferry Road, April 18, 2009, from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. For more information or to register, visit http://www.peachtreehillsplace.com or call 404-467-4900.
"Health care and long-term care should be easier as we age, not more difficult," said E. Andrew (Andy) Isakson, managing partner of Isakson Living, developer of Peachtree Hills Place. "It also should not require continual compromises in your lifestyle. Our intention is for this panel to help raise topics that will ultimately help our attendees reach their dream retirement."
