In December 7, 2015, a panel of distinguished speakers joined 150 participant-observers at Pitt Public Health's second annual Jonas Salk Symposium.During this year's symposium scholars representing different fields discussed the intersection of
wisdom and aging, each through a unique lens ranging from anthropology to neurobiology. A lively discussion was held between the panelists and observers representing the University and Pittsburgh communities, including several dozen participants from the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute.
Following the symposium, panelists gathered to begin work on an article for publication. Pitt Public Health continues to advance this topic through the Center for Aging and Population Health and in collaboration with the UPMC/Pitt Aging Institute.
