Sept. 24 — Sociologist publishes book exploring aging for women
Ester Carolina Apesoa-Varano published the book, When Older Women Speak: Aging, Emotional Distress and the Self, with her husband, sociologist Charles S. Varano. Carolina is a sociologist and associate professor at the Betty Irene Moore School of Nursing at UC Davis and Charles is a professor in the Department of Sociology at California State University, Sacramento. The book is based on the couple’s interviews with mostly working-class, depressed, older women and explores the interaction of gender, class, race and ethnicity, as well as aging, in the depression experience of older women. The book seeks to address a lack of understanding of late-life depression in women, especially in ethnic minorities, that range from detection and efficacy of treatment to informal influences, such as family, on formal depression care. Carolina is a researcher in the Family Caregiving Institute at the School of Nursing and she focuses her research on advancing health for older people.
