For more than 160 years, NYAM has been a major thought leader in the area of urban health, emerging as a resource for regional, national, and international print and broadcast media outlets that cover critical issues related to aging, disease prevention and health promotion, and health disparities.
With the urban population projected to reach 6.4 billion by 2050, the issue of urban health must cut across the sustainable development agenda, as was the message of the forum on Urban Health for a Sustainable Future: The Post 2015 Agenda held at the New York Academy of Medicine.
NYAM's Lindsay Goldman, Project Director for Age-friendly NYC, participated in a panel discussion on meeting the housing needs of older adults. The event was co-sponsored by the AARP Foundation to release a report from Harvard University’s Joint Center for Housing Studies, Housing America’s Older Adults: Meeting the Needs of an Aging Population.
Seniors can sometimes be forced to fend for themselves during disasters. However, they could be safer if they had better forms of communication and access to more resources, according to a new report from the New York Academy of Medicine.
