Baroness Julia Neuberger, a rabbi, social reformer, and member of the House of Lords, will give the 15th Annual James E. and Bonnie L. Eckenhoff Lecture on September 2 at 4 p.m. in the Pritzker Auditorium of Northwestern Memorial Hospital.
Baroness Neuberger’s lecture, “Creating Health and Social Care Policies for Elders: Thinking about Aging with Passion,” will discuss the healthcare and support systems for older persons in the United States and the United Kingdom, as well as examine how older persons can receive support at home without becoming isolated. The event is free and open to the public.

The Eckenhoff Lecture will be followed by the John & Gwen Smart Symposium at 5 p.m. The symposium will include a book-signing of the Baroness’ most recent book, A Manifesto for Old Age, as well as a poster session showcasing research and educational activities relevant to aging, the terminally ill, and other vulnerable populations.
Both events are hosted by the Buehler Center on Aging, Health & Society, which is a part of Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine.
