The Board of Advisors of A.G. Rhodes is proud to once again host its acclaimed Living Well Luncheon event on Thursday, February 23 from 11:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m. at a venue in Atlanta. We welcome Jude M. Phillip from Johns Hopkins University as our featured speaker. The topic of his conversation will be “Engineering Solutions for the Future of Aging and Health”.
Proceeds from the event benefit the A.G. Rhodes Care Partners Scholarship Fund, which provides assistance in further education and training opportunities for our staff.
Jude M. Phillip is an Assistant Professor of Biomedical Engineering, with a secondary appointment in Chemical & Biomolecular Engineering, and a core member of the Institute for Nanobiotechnology (INBT) at Johns Hopkins University. His lab studies biological aging dynamics in the context of health and disease. He combines fundamental engineering approaches with translational aging and oncology research to develop strategies and technologies to probe aging and identify mechanisms to modify aging trajectories to drive healthy aging.
Phillip has a bachelors of engineering degree in chemical engineering from the City College of New York and a PhD in chemical and biomolecular engineering from Johns Hopkins University. He completed his postdoctoral work at Weil Cornell Medicine with Leandro Cerchietti, MD and Ari Melnick, MD.
About the Event:
Each year, the A.G. Rhodes Board of Advisors hosts its signature Living Well Fundraiser to advance information about healthcare related to the elderly and to benefit the well-being of the residents we serve. This event brings together business leaders, partners, and supporters to hear speakers present on important aging-related issues that impact our community.
Supporters of the event help us fulfill our mission to serve older adults in our community, particularly those who lack adequate resources for the high-quality care we afford everyone who stays with us. Over the now eight years that we’ve held this annual event, we’ve featured speakers known throughout the nation and raised funds for important initiatives that greatly enhance the quality of life for our residents. Proceeds from the event go towards the A.G. Rhodes Care Partners Scholarship Fund, which provides assistance in further education and training opportunities for our staff.
