Dr. Nortin Hadler, a professor with the University of North Carolina’s Department of Medicine, will be at The Country Bookshop at 4:30 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 26, to discuss his new book, “Rethinking Aging: Growing Old and Living Well in an Overtreated Society.”
Hadley, who specializes in rheumatology and immunology, contends that often choices made for a patient’s care benefit the provider rather than the patient, leading to overtreatment.
Over the past decade, Hadler has established himself as a leading voice among those who approach the menu of health-care choices with informed skepticism.
Hadler graduated from Harvard University Medical School and did his residency at Massachusetts General Hospital, in Boston.
Hadler is also the author of “Last Well Person: How to Stay Well Despite the Health-Care System.”
In “Rethinking Aging,” Hadler offers a doctor’s perspective on the medical literature as well as his long clinical experience to help readers assess their health-care options and make informed medical choices in the last decades of life.
