10/11/18: Age Friendly NYC

AGE-FRIENDLY NYC: A DECADE OF ADDRESSING THE SOCIAL DETERMINANTS OF HEALTH

In partnership with New York Academy of Medicine and Age-friendly NYC

The New York Academy of Medicine initiated Age-friendly NYC in 2007 as a partnership with the Mayor’s Office and the New York City Council with a mission to maximize the social, physical, and economic participation of older people to improve their health and wellbeing and strengthen their communities. Using a top-down, bottom-up approach, Age-friendly NYC engages and seeks to effect change within the public sector, the private sector, and at the neighborhood level—all grounded in feedback from older New Yorkers.

This panel discussion will highlight the work of Age-friendly NYC over the past ten years and will present opportunities for increased collaboration with the health care sector to address the social determinants of health for older people.

Speakers:

Donna Corrado, PhD – Commissioner, New York City Department for the Aging

Judith A. Salerno, MD, MS – President, The New York Academy of Medicine

Audrey S. Weiner, DSW, MPH – Co-chair, Age-friendly NYC Commission President, Fund for the Aged, The New Jewish Home

Rosanne M. Leipzig, MD, PhD – Founding Chair of the Healthy Aging Section Gerald and May Ellen Ritter Professor (tenured) and the Vice Chair for Education of the Brookdale Department of Geriatrics and Palliative Medicine at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai
