Aging in America


On the four Thursdays in February, First Congregational United Church of Christ will offer a series of one-hour presentations on the medical, relational, and emotional challenges of aging in the United States. The presentations will be based on Dr. Atul Gawande’s book, Being Mortal. The sessions will run from 10 AM to 11 AM weekly.

Americans face the same challenges in aging as people around the world, but we also face unique challenges based on our medical care system and our approach to end-of-life issues. The class will identify some of those challenges and offer various options for maximizing our aging and end-of-life experiences.

Reading the book, Being Mortal, is not required but will enhance your class experience. There is no fee for the series but individuals are asked to register by calling (970-242-0298) or emailing ( the church office. The series will be led by the Rev. Dr. David Dethmers.
