This conference will grapple with the questions of wellness, community, life transitions and creativity as we age. From these foundations, we will explore how positive aging is a combination of health, well-being, self-actualization and living in a system of support.” Katrina Rogers, Senior Vice President, Provost, Fielding Graduate University.

During the last few minutes of the show, District Attorney Vicki Johnson warned listeners about a recent scam that has been targeting seniors in our area.

Diana Basehart has started a new foundation to help elders and others on limited incomes care for and keep their beloved companion animals by providing support for veterinary, behavioral and traditional needs, while also minimizing the number of animals being turned over to shelters.  There is a great need for this type of help in the Santa Barbara area and if you would like to help–please contact the foundation at contact@basehart.com  Diana also discussed her early efforts to protect animals and treat them humanely.  She and her husband Richard Basehart co-founded Actors & Others for Animals. 

This was truly an inspiring show and Frank and I were honored to be in the presence of a woman who has made such a difference in the lives of so many.  Visit her website at
