Hi Claire!
I watched and listened with curiosity your interview on HuffPostLive about your grandmother and anorexia among the elderly. I run a senior center in Hoffman Estates and regularly look for topics relatively to our active adults. I have not heard anything on your topic and wondered if indeed there isn't reason to! Would you mind contacting me at or call me at (847) 885-7500, x626? I would love to hear more and see if we can't get you in to do speak with our seniors!
Thank you for your consideration.
