Brown Bag Lunch Seminar: WHO's Age Friendly Cities Model as implemented in NYC

Monday, September  17th, 2018 - 1:00 p.m. - 2:00 p.m. EST
RSVP to Seminar

The World Health Organization (WHO) has shifted the paradigm on aging to focus on policies and programs to promote healthy and active aging across the life course. WHO’s Age Friendly Cities initiative is a global network of cities committed to creating communities that promote health and wellbeing for older persons and , in so doing, persons of all ages. Age Friendly NYC is a public-private partnership, started under Mayor Bloomberg and continuing under Mayor de Blasio. It has been led by the New York Academy of Medicine since 2008. Dr. Boufford was President of the New York Academy of Medicine during much of this time and will describe the initiative and its results to date.
