Tune in to CHMP’s Healthstyles Radio Thursday, June 25th, from 1:00 to 2:00 PM on WBAI, 99.5 FM in New York City and streamed online here.  Barbara Glickstein hosts this week’s segment of Healthstyles. Here’s the line-up:

There’s no doubt that caring for an aging parent, spouse or loved one is challenging, frustrating, and stressful, Last week co-producer Liz Seegert talked with caregivers about those issues. This week, she tells us about one place that provides a lively “second home” for caregivers. It’s a window on what caregiving services can be and a real eye opener for what’s to come.

She produced this series supported by a Journalists in Aging Fellowship, a collaboration of New America Media and the Gerontological Society of America, sponsored by the Silver Century Foundation.

We welcome back guest Virginia Reath, artist, RPA in GYN/Women’s Health, and feminist activist. We talk about the power of feminist public art campaigns historically and this new campaign by the National Women’s Liberation @4womenslib and Redstockings @redstockings who teamed up and are plastering vintage Redstockings stickers over sexist subway ads in NYC. Every conversation with Virginia Reach is thought-provoking and always feels too short.

Healthstyles in produced by the Center for Health, Media and Policy. To hear archives of previous programs search here.
