Mary Helen McSweeney, Long-Term Care Educator and Author

Today’s guest is Mary Helen McSweeney-Feld. Mary Helen is an associate professor at Towson University in the Department of Health Sciences. Mary Helen is the author of one of the leading textbooks in the field of long-term care, Dimensions of Long-Term Care: An Introduction, and is a recognized leader in long-term care education nationally. In this podcast I talk with Mary Helen about her journey from an early interest in political science and international affairs to discovering the nascent field of health economics in the 80’s, and her transition to an interest in long-term care as a result of having to care for both her father and father-in-law when they suffered from debilitating terminal illnesses. Mary Helen makes a passionate case for long-term care, pointing out the economic opportunities for entrepreneurs, as well as young people looking for a meaningful and well compensated career.
