Wellness Forum: “Taboos: Let’s Talk About Them”
Dr. Paul Cunningham and Bertha Cooper, BSN, will present a free WOW! Working on Wellness Radio Forum on Wednesday December 13th at 2:00-3:00 pm on KSQM FM Radio at 91.5 on the radio dial.
Taboos… what are they and how do they impact both your physical and mental well-being? This forum will shed light on questions and concerns that you have about your body or physical activities but are uncomfortable asking or talking about with your healthcare provider. Physical desire, senior sexuality, and corresponding supplements and equipment might feel like taboo topics, and so might mental acuity, or memory loss and forgetfulness. Taboo questions might be about what is happening with our mind and body as we age, how to cope with losing a life partner and all that comes with that loss, or anything else we are not comfortable asking about in public or with family and friends, but we should be able to talk about with someone.
Dr. Paul Cunningham is a physician board certified in Family Medicine, Geriatrics and Hospice and Palliative Care. Bertha Cooper, RN is a nurse by profession and the author of “Women, We’re Only Old Once!” and she has spent decades in medical leadership positions.
