Dr Susan Wehry, a geriatric pyschiatrist, is Chief of Geriatrics at the University of New England College of Osteopathic Medicine (UNE COM).
I am determined to turn the tables on stigma and ageism. I am convinced we can all age successfully. This is true for young and old, for people with and without disabilities and for people with and without dementia.
I am honored to share my passion with the next generation of physicians and other health professionals.
Coast to coast, participants appreciate the clarity and passion of her presentations.
I want to say again how wonderful your presentation was: exceptionally important concepts presented in a meaningful and attention-demanding way. Thank you.
