Mary Catherine Bateson will share her thoughts and research on the impact of improved health and longevity on marriage, childbearing, education, work, and retirement. Most recently, she has focused on a phase she terms “Adulthood II,” the period of relatively robust health that precedes the onset of frail old age. Dr. Bateson is a cultural anthropologist, linguist, Middle East specialist, and author who approaches her work from a multi-disciplinary perspective. This event is free and open to the public.
