End Notes: Secret To A Long Life

In her new End Notes blog, SR colleague Rebecca Nappi posts: “At lunch Thursday with one of my favorite people, Dr. Elizabeth Welty, who was a doctor in Spokane when women doctors were quite rare here, told me the 'secret' to an active life at 96. 'Keep busy. Plan tomorrow.' And, I noted, she drank real coffee — black.” (2007 SR file photo of Dr. Welty)

Question: What would say would be the secret to a long life?

A doctor’s prescription for a long life

At lunch Thursday with one of my favorite people, Dr. Elizabeth Welty, who was a doctor in Spokane when women doctors were quite rare here, told me the “secret” to an active life at 96.

“Keep moving. Plan tomorrow.”

And, I noted, she drank real coffee — black.
