Bob Loudermilk – The entrepreneurial drive grabbed a hold of Bob Loudermilk when he was just 13, leading him to start a neighborhood newspaper and selling them door to door. Since that time, Bob’s career has had a few twists and turns, but at the heart of it has always been his desire to serve his community and help others succeed. Bob has been in the event business for over 20 years, planning and organizing meaningful seminars and expos around the country. He and his family moved to Oklahoma City over 5 years ago to be near his wife’s father, Jerry Cutter, who just celebrated his 91st birthday.

We’ll be talking about the October, 2022 Second Half Expo, as well as the many resources that are available through the Oklahoma Senior Journal, including our events, our app and website and our weekly radio show.

We will be asking questions like; (just to name a few)

  • ROBIN, you’ve been doing this for about 30 years. What was your vision when you created the very first issue of the Oklahoma Senior Journal and what needs were you trying to meet?
  • ROBIN, you talk a lot about “the sandwich generation.” Will you give us a little insight on what that means and how the OSJ Media packages can be a valuable resource for this generation?

1-15-22: Germaine Odenheimer M.D. – Geriatric Neurologist

In studio this week on the new 96.9FM The Eagle, we have Germaine Odenheimer M.D. on the Rise and Thrive radio hour. Germaine is a Geriatric Neurologist, Professor Emeritus at OU College of Medicine. Her career was devoted to people with dementia and their caregivers and became caregiver for her mother with dementia.

Dr. Odenheimer pictured with her mother who was the inspiration behind the Memory Garden.

She was recruited to OU College of Medicine to develop a geriatric curriculum for medical students and focused her teaching on recognizing and caring for people with cognitive impairments. She required all her medical students to participate in Alzheimer support groups.

When she “retired” in 2017 it was from the bureaucracy of medicine. She has maintained her license and continues to stay very engaged as an advocate for those suffering with dementia and their caregivers.

A few of the questions we will be asking Dr. Odenheimer are, “Dr Odenheimer, I understand you have some concerns about people with dementia and their caregivers being scammed. Why is that? How did you stumble on the current scam you are here to discuss?” Listen in and hear the answers to these and many other questions that will help you avoid being scammed!
