Life at the End: Losing Money, Memory and Muscles
Tracy Brown

Dr Tracy Brown is a geriatrician - a specialist for the older person. Death, dying, ageing, loss of youth, memory, libido, flexibility, independence and standard of living are definitely "unmentionable" in our youth obsessed culture.

Living a full life to the end requires proactive planning for increasing care needs combined with financial, cognitive and physical flexibility.

The key to excellence in healthcare delivery in the future requires a focus on health, care of the sick and awareness of essential factors for healing. Tracy lectures on clinical management plans, lifestyle prescriptions and the patient experience.
