At the first event in our “Speaking of Health in CNY” Series, aging experts discussed the role of the health care system and the community in improving the health of older adults in central New York.
With Central New York aging at a rapid rate that is putting increasing pressure on the region and its health care system, Juergen H.A. Bludau, M.D., director of Clinical Geriatric Services, Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston, and Philip B. Stafford, Ph.D., director of the Center on Aging and Community at Indiana University, discussed the role of the health care system and presented information on best practices to improve the health and well-being of older adults in both clinical settings and the community.
“Live Long and Prosper” was the first session in our series “Speaking of Health in CNY: Discussions on Topics that Matter.” The speaker series supports the central New York community in improving the health of its residents by providing a forum to share best practices and successful efforts from other communities.
