Dr. Emdur introduces himself and describes healthy aging.
Hi, I am Larry Emdur and I am a board-certified pulmonologist and internist. I also practice critical care medicine at Alvarado Hospital. I am dealing with lot of men and women and end of life issues and I also manage Alvarado Hospital’s emergency room program for admissions to the hospital and as I have gotten older and I am older - 61, I’ve become very interested in things that I can do to make sure I don’t become like one of my patients.
So, in the last year or two I have become board-certified in anti-aging medicine which kind of brings me to the interest of well-being and health for men and women.
I am trained under the auspices of American Academy of Anti-aging and I really don’t like the name anti-aging, it’s like being against aging. It didn’t make sense. What we are really talking about is, we are all aging, but how do you do it in a healthy manner so you will limit disabilities, you can have a healthy fruitful life with good vision, mobility, well into your 70s, 80s and 90s. So, healthy aging is really living in the healthiest way possible to optimize your well-being and feeling good.
