As our country’s demographics continue to shift and our population ages, what will healthcare look like in the future? How will proposed changes to our healthcare system affect senior services, people with disabilities, and people living with Alzheimer’s and dementia?
A panel of experts will offer their perspectives on these questions and other questions at the Jewish Association on Aging’s (JAA) 2017 Annual Meeting, “Healthcare: The Great Debate.” Free and open to the public, this event will take place at 6:30 p.m. on Tuesday, October 24 at Rodef Shalom, 4905 Fifth Ave, Pittsburgh, PA 15213.
Our lively, fascinating roundtable discussion will feature the following panelists:
Andrew W. Gurman, M.D., Immediate Past President of the American Medical Association
Daphna Gans, Ph.D., David Geffen School of Medicine UCLA, UCLA Center for Health Policy Research
Martin Gaynor, Ph.D., E.J. Barone Professor of Economics and Health Policy at Carnegie Mellon University and former Director of Economics at the U.S. Federal Trade Commission
Karen Wolk Feinstein, Ph.D., President and Chief Executive Officer of the Jewish Healthcare Foundation
In addition to exploring the future of healthcare in the United States – and in Western Pennsylvania – we will take this opportunity to celebrate the JAA’s accomplishments in fiscal year 2017 and honor our volunteer of the year, Sheryl Milch.
