New York Times columnist Jane Brody recently spoke at The Glenridge on Palmer Ranch as part of The Art of Living Well: An Educational Series. The nationally renowned speaker and best-selling author discussed diet, nutrition, exercise and continuing education in her presentation titled “Positive Aging.” Approximately 260 people attended the event, which was held March 15 at The Glenridge Performing Arts Center.

She joined The Times in 1965 as a full-time specialist in medicine and biology, and in 1976, she was appointed as the personal health columnist. Her column continues to appear every Wednesday in more than 100 newspapers around the country. The author of numerous books on health and nutrition, she has appeared on hundreds of radio and television shows, and has received numerous prestigious awards for journalistic excellence.
