The Doctor in the Mirror is centered on a simple, yet often-overlooked premise: as you age, the health advocate you need first and foremost is you. It starts with an honest look in the mirror to identify the barriers keeping you from better health. Then it calls on “the amazing, the brilliant, the esteemed Dr. You” to overcome those barriers. Not overnight, but over time.

Discover how to maximize your partnership with your physicians, hospitals, and the health care system. And finally, Dr. You will learn to weave a safety net of relationships built around home, family, friends, and community to maximize your quality of life.
As you age, don’t let your health situation take control of you. Take control of your health situation instead. Come on, America. It’s time to age with more vitality!
