MJHS Invited to the White House What an Honor!
JHS was invited to speak at The White House on October 1st as part of the Association of Jewish Aging Services (AJAS) Senior Health Care Briefing. Alexander S. Balko, MJHS President & CEO, presented on the topic of Innovation in Hospice and Palliative Care. Addressing the increasing demand for palliative care as well as culturally sensitive hospice services, he highlighted both the Center for Jewish End of Life Care and the MJHS Institute for Innovation in Palliative Care.
Additional presenters included Kathy Greenlee, Assistant Secretary for Aging; Ben Belton, Senior Advisor to the Acting Commissioner of Social Security; and Tina Tchen, Assistant to the President and Chief of Staff to the First Lady, to name just a few representatives from the White House and Administration. Four other AJAS members and the Cleveland Clinic also presented. “We often speak about our long history of innovation, and the role of MJHS as a leader in hospice and palliative care. Having this opportunity to speak at the White House serves as a compelling reflection on the work we do,” said Balko. “I couldn’t have been more proud.”
