The EPGS Annual Meeting and Awards Dinner
Monday, December 8, 2014

Thank you to everyone who attended our Annual Meeting and Awards Dinner on December 8 at the Union League of Philadelphia.

A special thank you to our Keynote Speaker, Robert I. Field, PhD, MPH, JD, Professor of Law at the Kline School of Law and Professor of Health Management and Policy at the School of Public Health at Drexel University for offering insight into his recent book, "Mother of Invention: How the Government Created 'Free-Market' Health Care," which presents a historical overview of government programs in creating and maintaining the health care system and places health reform in the context of an ongoing evolutionary process. His discussion was followed by an insightful question and answer session on related topics.

Our congratulations to our Award Recipients:
  • Professor Robert I. Field of Drexel University, the Charles Ewing President's Award for extraordinary accomplishments in improving the lives of the elderly.
  • Philip C. Taylor, MD, the Barbara Bell, MD Award for distinguished service in the field of Geriatric Medicine.
  • Barbara Reall, MBA, MSN, CRNP of Optum (formerly Evercare), the Nancy Tatum, RN Award for distinguished service in the field of Geriatric Nursing.
