The inaugural “Road to Resilience” luncheon with keynote speaker Dr. Jennifer Ashton will be hosted by the Ferd & Gladys Alpert Jewish Family Service on Thursday, March 12 at the Wycliffe Country Club.
A couvert of $118 per person is required. Diane and Robert Herzog, title sponsors of the event, and Patricia Rosen, publisher of Sober World Magazine, are event chairs. Atria Villages of Windsor Senior Living is a platinum sponsor, and Vivian and Erwin Lieberman and Origins Behavioral Health are silver sponsors.
Ashton, the chief medical correspondent and health editor for ABC News and “Good Morning America,” is a board-certified ob/gyn. She has authored five books, has an active medical practice in Englewood, N.J., and when not working can be found training for triathlons. All attendees will receive a complimentary signed copy of Ashton’s book, Life After Suicide, which recounts how she and her children picked up the pieces after an unfathomable loss. The eye-opening view into how suicide affects those left behind also offers hope.
Event proceeds will benefit the Alpert JFS Annual Fund to assist those struggling with addiction and mental health challenges.
