With 14 workshops, 5 general sessions, and the Healthy Aging Star Awards, the 2021 Summit provided information about the health-related issues that impact people in your community. We learned from experts on new interventions and initiatives that support older adult health and connected with colleagues to learn what they’re doing to improve community health.
Summit Keynote Speaker
Louise Aronson, MD
Geriatrician, writer, educator, and professor of medicine at the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF), Dr. Louise Aronson was our keynote speaker this year. Dr. Aronson is the author of the New York Times bestseller Elderhood: Redefining Aging, Transforming Medicine, and Reimagining Life. In her book, she challenges not only the way we look at aging but also the way we think and feel about medicine and what it means to be a human being across the lifespan.
A graduate of Harvard Medical School, her recognitions includes the Gold Professorship in Humanism in Medicine, a MacDowell Artists’ Fellowship, and the American Geriatrics Society Clinician-Teacher of the Year award.
