COMING THIS FALL TO PBS STATIONS NATIONWIDE:  The Journey into Wellbeing’s ‘Senior Moments” 

In her quest to “healthify” the nation, Debra K believes there are valuable stories needing to be told.

“We have to do something right now to empower and educate our older population to keep them healthy and in their homes for as long as possible. ‘Senior Moments’ will help older adults and their caretakers set a path toward wellness and stop the crisis we are heading toward as our older population pressures our healthcare system.”   Debra K
