Aging expert celebrates becoming an older woman

Lucy Rose Fischer is a former researcher with a career in gerontology that spanned 25 years. Now 69, she has recently published a book that provides a humorous look at her own aging process. In this article, she lauds her retirement as it has allowed her time to pursue one of her life-long passions: art. Fischer is using her retirement to explore a second career in painting, saying, “It’s good for the brain.”
