AGING MATTERS radio program
01/28/2020 to 01/28/20202701-C Wilson Blvd, Arlington, VA 22201
Obesity has been called an epidemic in the United States. Some 15 million people over age 51 are obese. This represents nearly one in four older adults. While obesity itself is not a chronic condition, it is a risk factor for many diseases, including four of the ten leading causes of death in the U.S. — coronary heart disease, type II diabetes, stroke and several forms of cancer. Obesity also affects day-to-day lives of this population. On AGING MATTERS this Tuesday January 28 at 2:00 pm on WERA-LP 96.7 FM, host Cheryl Beversdorf talks with Neil Caporaso, M.D., Principal Investigator, National Cancer Institute, about the obesity epidemic among older adults and new approaches to weight loss and obesity prevention.

Prosecuting Evil: The Extraordinary World of Ben Ferencz
01/29/2020 to 01/29/202015 Lloyd St, Baltimore, MD 21202
Barry Avrich’s gripping new documentary tells the fascinating story of Ben Ferencz—the last surviving Nuremberg prosecutor and lifelong advocate of “law not war.” After witnessing Nazi concentration camps shortly after liberation, Ferencz became lead prosecutor in the Einsatzgruppen case at Nuremberg, which has been called the biggest murder trial in history. He was 27 years old and it was his first trial. All 22 Nazi officials tried for murdering over a million people were convicted. Ferencz went on to advocate for restitution for Jewish victims of the Holocaust and later for the establishment of the International Criminal Court. His fight for justice for victims of atrocity crimes continues today. For tickets, please visit http://jewishmuseummd.org/single/prosecuting-evil/
