Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Dr. Korr explains with enthusiasm and great clarity how any reader can, through a holistic approach to health and applying scientifically based osteopathic principles, improve quality of life and promote successful aging.

Book News Annotation:

Korr, an osteopathic educator who lived to be 95, discusses myths about health and lessons he learned from osteopathic medicine. He and health psychologist McGovern (A. T. Still U.-Kirksville College of Osteopathic Medicine) explain the principles of this holistic approach to aging well. The guide includes state-by-state resources for osteopathic healthcare, a glossary, and photos of Dr. Kerr active into his 80s. Kirksville College is the founding school for osteopathic medicine.

He spent most of his career at Kirksville College of Osteopathic Medicine, but also worked at New York University School of Medicine, Michigan State College of Osteopathic Medicine, and the University of Texas School of Osteopathic Medicine. He wrote numerous articles and several books, mostly on the human nervous system and the physiological basis for osteopathic medicine.
