Dr. Marc Agronin | Geriatric Psychiatrist and Senior Vice President, Behavioral Health at Miami Jewish Health
As one of America’s leading geriatric psychiatrists, Dr. Marc Agronin sees both the sickest and the healthiest of seniors, what works to make their lives better and more purposeful and what doesn’t. The latest scientific research and Dr. Agronin’s first-hand experience are brilliantly distilled in "The End of Old Age" —a call and a plan to no longer see aging as an implacable enemy and start seeing it as a developmental force for enhancing well-being, meaning, and longevity.
The acclaimed author of How We Age, whose “descriptive powers are a gift to readers” (Sherwin Nuland), presents a hopeful and practical model of aging—a guide to understanding how we can all make the journey better.
Throughout The End of Old Age, the focus is squarely on: “So what does this mean for me and my family?” In the final part of the book, Dr. Agronin provides simple but revealing charts that you can fill out to identify, develop, and optimize your unique age-given strengths. It’s nothing short of an action plan to help you age better by improving how you value the aging process, guide yourself through stress, and find ways to creatively address change for the best possible experience and outcome.
