SAVE THE DATE! The 2024 PIA Conference, Compassion in Action, will be held on Thursday, April 18 at DeSales University. Dr. Stephen Trzeciak, of Cooper Medical Center and author of Compassionomics: The Revolutionary Scientific Evidence that Caring Makes a Difference, will be the keynote speaker.
On April 27, 2023, the Phoebe Institute on Aging (PIA) held its annual conference at DeSales University. More than 150 attendees enjoyed an inspirational talk by keynote speaker, International Boxing Hall of Fame member, and former WBA lightweight champion Ray “Boom Boom” Mancini. Using examples from his life, Ray explained what it takes to chase after a dream and how to face, contend with, and overcome any obstacle.
The conference offered morning and afternoon sessions that examined resiliency in older adults, from the normal aging processes to environmental stresses and reviewed clinician and practitioner strategies that promote resiliency and wellness in senior citizens.
