Susan Ryan sits down with Terry Fulmer, president and CEO of the John A. Hartford Foundation. Terry holds master’s and doctoral degrees from Boston College, and her Geriatric Nurse Practitioner Post-Master’s Certificate from NYU. She serves as the chief strategist for the Foundation, and is fueled by her passion for older adults, exceptional visionary skills, and preponderance for action.
Terry and Susan explore that history of the foundation and their priority areas, including a look at Age-Friendly Health Systems, why they are important, and where to find valuable and practical resources for consumers.
Terry talks about the COVID-19 crisis, the foundation’s response to it, and her experience serving on the Coronavirus Commission for Safety and Quality in Nursing Homes. She also offers some provocative ideas for elevating eldercare—asking “why not,” and “what if.” As a woman of action, Terry believes it’s time speak up and speak out in order to find solutions.
