The 2nd Annual William S. Perper Healthy Community Partnership National Symposium was held on Thursday, October 17, 2013 at the Fifth Avenue Presbyterian Church in New York City. The event focused on the serious health challenges that affect the aging population. The day was divided into three parts—a panel discussion in the early afternoon, followed by a networking and resource fair, and a keynote presentation for caregivers in the evening. Nearly 60 people representing senior centers, health and human services organizations, and faith communities attended the event. Many thanks to everyone who made this year’s symposium a success—Dr. Dan Hale and Kimberly Monson from the Healthy Community Partnership; and panelists Drs. Chris Durso, Kostas Lyketsos and Panagis Galiatsatos, Theodora Peters and the Rev. Dr. Jeff Sumner.
