An Encore Career

There was a time when retirement was seen as the end of a successful career, and the start of a new chapter in life, filled with travel, leisure and personal discovery.  But now tens of millions of baby boomers are leaving retirement behind and setting out to make their mark, or a little extra cash, by starting an "encore career."  Today HearSay host Cathy Lewis is joined by former New York Times career columnist, Marcia Alboher, and two local ex-retirees to discuss the challenge and rewards facing older Americans as they reenter the job market.

Scheduled Guests:

Marci Alboher
- Former New York Times Career Columnist, Vice President of Encore.org

HearSay from the Headlines 2/5

March's automatic spending cuts are looming over Congress, as is the possible furlough of nearly a million civil employees. However, even in the short term, local jobs are far from safe as Navy officers and executives have been ordered to immediately cut expenses.  On this edition of HearSay from the Headlines, host Cathy Lewis and our guests will evaluate these mandated reductions and their impact on the region's workforce. As always, our phone lines are open and we invite you for you to share your thoughts by calling in live at 757-440-2665 or 1-800-940-2240.  You can also e-mail the program at hearsay@whrv.org or join us on our Facebook page www.facebook.com/hearsaywithcathylewis.

Maternal Mortality

Maternal Mortality
Fans of PBS Masterpiece Theater’s Downton Abbey might still be in a state of shock and disbelief after last week's episode, in which beloved Lady Sybil Crawley gave birth and then died from “eclampsia.”  What might be even more shocking is that, despite advances in modern healthcare and birthing procedures, the maternal mortality rate for women in the U.S. has doubled in the last 25 years. On today's HearSay, host Cathy Lewis considers an issue as old as childbirth itself and speak with public health and maternity experts about what can be done to prevent the death of mothers at childbirth.

Scheduled Guests:

Dr. Victoria M. Kavanaugh -  Coordinator, Maternal Mortality Review Team
vdh.virginia.gov

Dr. Susan Lanni - Associate Professor and Medical Director, Labor and Delivery unit at Virginia Commonwealth University
obgyn.vcu.edu

Dr. Suneet Chauhan - Professor of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Eastern Virginia Medical School
