Martha Stewart Center for Living 2015 Gala

On Wednesday, April 22, Martha Stewart hosted the sixth Martha Stewart Center for Living 2015 Gala, bringing to life the importance of health care accessibility to older adults for the sixth year. The gala included a panel discussion moderated by Maria Bartiromo, Global Markets Editor, FOX Business Network/FOX News Channel.

The discussion focused on the Mobile Acute Care Team (MACT), an innovative program being piloted by Mount Sinai to provide patients in need with acute care in-home. Bartiromo moderated the panel with Albert L. Siu, MD, Chairman of the Brookdale Department of Geriatrics and Palliative Medicine at Mount Sinai and Audrey K. Chun, MD, Medical Director of the Martha Stewart Center for Living within the Brookdale Department of Geriatrics and Palliative Medicine. The event raised nearly $500,000 for the Center.

Following the panel, Stewart presented several honorees with the “Living Award,” an honor bestowed each year to someone who has made a substantial and positive impact on the public good.

The Martha Stewart Center for Living (MSCL) serves to promote and facilitate access to health care resources for older adults and to enhance the public perception of aging. Through the MSCL, patients and their caregivers have access to programs and resources appropriate for their needs and interests. These may include medical care, healthy living activities, educational programs, caregiver support, and community referrals through the most up-to-date technologies and evidence-based information.
