Meeting People Where They Are: A Community Health Approach to CVD and Healthy Aging (The Baltimore Case Study)



December 6, 2023


The Paley Center for Media, NYC

1:35–1:50pm EST

The growth of the older demographic around the world necessitates a wider and more ambitious application of age-friendliness throughout all aspects of life. In two back-to-back Fireside Chats, guest speakers will share real-life examples how innovative leaders are leveraging the WHO Age-Friendly City and Communities framework to achieve healthy aging within communities – first by harnessing the power of data to strengthen adult immunization in 5 global cities and second where a bold intervention seeks to improve cardiovascular health within an entire community through a proactive and customized approach. In the panel discussion that follows these inspiring case studies, leaders from finance, design, and societal institutions will discuss how the Age-Friendly framework is inspiring a global movement in age-friendliness that extends far beyond the city.
