North Jersey Villages (NJV) invites you to hear Dr. Atul Gawande

 Being Mortal’s Villages:

The Value of Community and Choice as We Grow Older


Dr. Gawande, renowned author, public health researcher and surgeon, is guest speaker at the 15th Celebration of the founding of Beacon Hill Village and the subsequent Village Movement they inspired.  The conversation will feature a discussion on aging, living life with purpose, and how we can transform the possibilities for the later chapters of everyone’s lives. The event will be simulcast from Boston to more than 150 of the 350-plus villages open and in development across the country, including North Jersey Villages in Bergen County, NJ. 


The Village Movement is a burgeoning, world-wide movement that champions an alternative approach for adults as they grow older. Villages are unique in that they are created by and for older adults, empowering their members to make wise, safe, and vibrant choices about how they wish to live.


All are welcome to join North Jersey Villages for a viewing party, refreshments and discussion.


WHEN:            Monday, September 25, 2017; 4:30-6:30 p.m. ET


WHERE:          Berkeley College
64 East Midland Avenue; Paramus, NJ
