Roundtable for Boomers and Seniors – Session IV, Living Well vs. Living Forever
- This event has passed.
The Roundtable for Boomers & Seniors provides an opportunity for constituents to come together to explore life issues that are relevant across the age span. At each session, attendees hear from and engage with professionals who are knowledgeable on topics that are of most concern to the growing population of older adults in New York City. Over the course of five sessions, the Roundtable looks at a specific issue from different perspectives each month. This year’s series will focus on Living Well as We Age in the Community.
The fourth roundtable session will take place Thursday, April 2nd from 8:30 to 10:30 a.m. at Lenox Hill Neighborhood House, 331 East 70th Street, and the topic will be “Living Well vs. Living Forever.” One of the great accomplishments of science is that we have been able to significantly extend the average life span. But how do we balance living long vs. living well? Hear from the experts about how to think about what is truly important to us when making health care decisions, and learn about exciting new research using psychedelics as part of palliative care and to address end-of-life existential distress.
Speakers include Anthony P. Bossis, PhD, Clinical Assistant Professor, Department of Psychiatry, NYU School of Medicine, and – Mary E. Morrissey, PhD, MPH, JD, Program Director, Healthcare Management Certificate Program in Public Health and Palliative Care, Global Health Care Innovation Management Center at Fordham University.
