Thursday on CoastLine: Beginning the Conversation

May 15, 2017

On Thursday’s CoastLine: in Western culture, aging is so stigmatized that some people avoid the conversation entirely – and that means putting off planning for senior healthcare and housing. We’ll try to open up that dialogue with a professor of gerontology and an expert in local palliative care services.


·        Dr. Anne Glass, Professor in the School of Health and Applied Human Sciences at the University of North Carolina – Wilmington.  She’s also the Coordinator of UNCW’s Gerontology program. 

·        Dr. David Free, Director of Lower Cape Fear Hospice’s Palliative Care Services
