Event description

Description

Dinner and Discussion

“It began with what she saw in the bathroom mirror.” So starts the New York Times article titled “Fraying at the Edges” that describes Geri Taylor’s diagnosis and experience with Alzheimer’s disease. Join us for a very special program as Geri and her husband Jim share how their story has evolved and how they continue to maintain their quality of life while living with Alzheimer’s.

Jim and Geri will discuss:

  • The impact of Alzheimer’s disease on their lives

  • Their advocacy work

  • Their personal experience with (and passion for) clinical trials

  • What they wish healthcare providers knew about working with patients and families


Speakers:

During her forty-five year career, she was a successful health care executive in New York City, serving in senior executive positions at Beth Abraham Hospital and the Jewish Guild for the Blind. Geri’s legacy includes building a Medicare/Medicaid program to provide nursing-home eligible seniors with medical services in their homes. This program is now serving approximately eighty thousand people in New York City.
