About William S. Perper
The Perper Foundation has generously provided funding for ten years to support the William S. Perper Healthy Community Partnership National Symposium. The annual symposium honors William “Bill” Perper’s legacy to helping those less fortunate by engaging partnerships between hospitals and faith communities that have the potential to address many of today’s greatest health care challenges.
Through a commitment to his faith community at the Fifth Avenue Presbyterian Church in New York, Bill understood the power and engagement of clergy to improve health and chronic disease management in vulnerable populations nationwide. Building healthy communities through medical religious partnerships, was an area of interest for him, as he believed that people needed to become actively involved in their own health care and overall fitness for a better quality of life.
Over the years that many Johns Hopkins Bayview leaders got to know Bill Perper as a patient and friend, he always expressed gratitude for the care and attention that was given to him as a patient. Today, his lasting impression will be in hosting a series of annual symposia in an effort to affect positive changes in health care delivery and empower people to maintain their health, independence and dignity.
