Reimagining Aging: A Fireside Chat with a Geriatrician

Every day, 10,000 baby boomers in the United States turn 65 years old. There is a growing sense of apprehension about how this aging population will impact our already-strained healthcare system.

In this casual “fireside chat,” we’ll hear from Scott Kaiser, MD, a Harvard-trained geriatrician and chief innovation officer who is committed to developing innovative care delivery models that improve the health and quality of life of older adults.
