Creative expression is a vital part of life at any stage, but it becomes particularly important as we age. Learn how the creative process can improve your quality of life and what you can do to nurture your creative spirit. Hear from a panel of older adults who have recently discovered or continue to explore themselves through music, art or writing. Their work and stories are sure to inspire you!
Moderator: Bennett Gurian, M.D. (artist) with panelists: Riva Berkovitz (photographer), Harry Johnson (writer), Anne Gamble (musician) and Denise Lotufo (physical therapist/musician)
