Family Caregiving as a Public Health Issue

A Panel Discussion

Please join us as we explore the challenges of family caregiving through one family’s story. We are fortunate that Valerie Martinez (Class of ’99, SOM) is willing to share her journey as she grapples with the emerging needs of two very independent parents with growing healthcare needs. A panel of experts will reflect upon Valerie’s experiences, providing insights from the clinical, research and advocacy perspectives.

We are honored that Sten H. Vermund, MD, PhD, Dean of the Yale School of Public Health, will open this forum, inspired by the report, “From Insight to Advocacy: Family Caregiving as a Public Health Issue.”

We hope you’ll join us for an evening of drinks, hors d’oeuvres, and thoughtful conversation.
