Biomediations Book Talk with Dr. Nancy Hodgson
Join us to on March 14th at 3.30 PM in the Biomedical Library to hear from Dr. Nancy Hodgson about her new book Better Living with Dementia.
Dr. Hodgson is Anthony Buividas Term Chair in Gerontology, and Associate Professor of Nursing. She is also the co-founder of the Palliative Care Program at the Madlyn and Leonard Abramson Center (formerly the Philadelphia Geriatric Center) — one of the first nursing-home based palliative care programs in the nation.
In their new book, Better Living with Dementia: Implications for Individuals, Families, Communities, and Societies, Penn Nursing’s Nancy Hodgson and Drexel’s Laura Gitlin investigate the struggles of families living with dementia, including difficulties in education about the condition, accessing supportive resources, and navigating the complex world of legal protection, nursing home care, and respite.
