Listen NOW:


Caring for parents or grandparents is different in Asian culture. Today I chat with Felicia Gunawan, who is an Indonesian Functional Nutritional Advisor. We talk about how food can be used to care for our elders as they age, when they're sick, or simply need some comfort. If you are an Asian adult child or caregiver, be sure to tune in for insight, encouragement, and inspiration.
