Symposium On Aging

Aging advocates, researchers, thought leaders, innovators, authors, poets, even actors and city planners, economists and community activists push the Institute on Aging at Saint John’s beyond traditional boundaries and change our understanding of what it means to grow older.

Since 2017, the Symposium has annually convened a roster of the finest minds to imagine a new paradigm for aging to undergird the values and practice of the Institute.  What began as a pioneering effort, now serves to confront, challenge and excite an ever-widening circle of older adults, clergy, social service providers and caregivers with the promise and the peril of aging in the 21st Century.
