Take Charge of Your Life

Mondays, 6:30-7:00pm

Each week, marriage and family therapist Eleanor Bobrow invites you to take charge of your life with guests discussing a variety of topics including health, relationships, wellness, and more. The theme of this program is that so many events in life happen to us over which we have no control. Our only control is our response to life’s situations. It is said that 90% of life’s events happen to us and 10% is what we make happen.

Host Eleanor Bobrow welcomes Elaine Zelker, a former nurse, current photographer, and author of The Hand-Some Journey - Portraits of Elders Reflecting on Their Life's Journey to discuss the new book featuring stories introduced by a photograph of their hands holding something special that is a symbol of their life story.
