  • Your Retirement Years

    March 23rd, 2009 Many of us will experience 1/3rd of our life in the so-called retirement years. Advance planning for many issues is a wise thing. Dr. Michael Creedon, gerontologist and long-time presenter for NITP, will discuss some of them including: the ever-present spouse in the house, the single life in retirement, boomerang children, then volunteering, and maybe for some, returning full-time to the work world, and finally, what are some options for those 24 hours in a day?

    Bob Leins and Tammy Flanagan will host the show with Dr. Creedon as our ever-popular guest.
