atul gawandeThank you to everyone who was able to join us for today’s symposium featuring Atul Gawande.  As Audrey Weiner and Atul discussed, changing the conversation about both living and dying is a must as we as a society confront the myriad issues surrounding the aging of our population.  These are the conversations we have every day with elders and their families and our own caregivers at The New Jewish Home.

Please click here for a group of initial photos from today’s event. More photos and a video of the event to come. And join us on twitter to see comments from today’s event and to continue the conversation.

Perhaps you were inspired to help us have meaningful conversations with those we care for and, as we have for 167 years, to provide the most expert and compassionate care possible throughout the New York metropolitan area.  We would welcome your philanthropic support of our efforts.

Thanks so much for participating in today’s important discussion.
