Rethinking 'Elderhood' Geriatrician Dr. Louise Aronson treats patients who are in their 60s — as well as those who are older than 100. "I need to be a different sort of doctor for people at different ages and phases of old age," she says. Aronson writes about changing approaches to elder health care in the book, 'Elderhood.'

Also, jazz critic Kevin Whitehead reviews a live recording from saxophonist Stan Getz.
