Thank you so much for listening. We’ve got a great guest today in Henry Winkler, who’ll join us in just a moment. But, quickly, if you missed any episodes, last week was our 710th episode when I spoke with Smithsonian Associate Chris
Thorogood about his upcoming Smithsonian Associates presentation titled Chasing Plants. Two weeks ago, I spoke with Ralph White, who has written the excellent new book, Getting Out of Saigon. Getting Out of Saigon is the remarkable story of a city on the eve of destruction and the colorful characters who respond differently to impending doom. It’s about one man’s quest to save innocent lives, not because it was ordered but because it was the right thing to do. Excellent subjects for our Not Old Better Show audience. If you missed those shows, along with any others, you can go back and check them out with my entire back catalog of shows, all free for you, there on our website, NotOld-Better.com. You can Google Not Old Better and get everything you need about us!
Our guest today is the actor, producer, spokesperson, and star of the new hit comedy Barry, Henry Winkler. Henry Winkler, who is partnering with Apellis to help older adults and their families become more aware of the symptoms of geographic atrophy (GA) – an advanced form of age-related macular degeneration (AMD) and a leading cause of blindness.
Henry’s father-in-law, Ed, with whom he had a very close relationship, was diagnosed with AMD, which resulted in the loss of his vision and, ultimately, his independence. Henry watched as Ed’s everyday life became more difficult, like driving his car, seeing the faces of his grandkids or even being able to see to pour himself a glass of water.
Though Henry now finds himself around the same age as Ed when his vision started to decline, Henry is still active and has no plans to slow down. We’ll have a wide ranging conversation with Henry Winkler about health, the Fonz, his upcoming season of Barry, and much more. Please join me in welcoming to the Not Old Better Show on radio and podcast, Henry Winkler.
