Book Review: My Reaction to Peter Attia MD’s new book, “Outlive”
April 27th, 2023

Title: Outlive: The Science & Art of Longevity Author:  Peter Attia, MD (author, audiobook narrator) with Bill Gifford (author) Reviewed for BabyBoomer.org by Gregory Damian   I started listening to Peter Attia MD’s “The Drive” podcast in December of 2021.

Older US Workers of Color at a Disadvantage
March 28th, 2023

As workers age, poor health or disabling physical conditions can interfere with holding down a job.
