“The champions we honor this year have set a wonderful example for us all on how to enhance the physical and emotional well-being of our elderly population now and in the future,” offered prexy Deborah Brodine during the Celebrating Senior Champions event hosted by UPMC Senior Services on Thursday.

More than 400 gathered at the Omni William Penn to toast this year's class of honorees for their dedication to senior causes. They included Good Neighbor Champion Jean Curtis, Caregiver Champion Robert Shuster and Grand Champion Dr. Loren Roth, whose plans include holding a proposed World's Fair on Aging in Pittsburgh in 2020.

“The main thing here is the dignity of aged people,” he offered.

“I'm very proud of him. They are doing so much now in terms of aging. There's a whole other phase we need to be thinking about,” observed his wife, Ellen, who was joined by their grown children Alexandra Roth-Kahn and Elizabeth Roth, both from New York.
