Bill Thomas, M.D., a geriatrician who champions nurturing environments for long-term care, is on a national tour promoting a new view of aging through a nonfiction theatrical performance called “Life’s Most Dangerous Game.” Sponsored by AARP, the tour includes stops in Charleston, April 18, and Columbia, April 19.
