Mitchell Blutt is a professor at Weill Cornell Medical College, the CEO of Consonance Capital and the former executive partner at JPMorgan Partners in New York. The first physician in the professional healthcare investment business, Mitchell Blutt is also a member of the New York Academy of Medicine.

The New York Academy of Medicine is a nonprofit medical organization whose mission is to improve the health of those living in cities. Established over 160 years ago, the organization is now a major source of research, program initiatives, and policy changes with regard to urban health. Many of these programs are created in response to the changing climate within society today, such as the Healthy Aging Program.

While healthy aging has always been a priority, it has become even more so in the current decade, as there have been dramatic increases in the number of older persons (over 65 years of age) living in cities. As such, the Healthy Aging Program is given a top priority by the New York Academy of Medicine. Within this program, and through partnership with the New York City Council and the Office of the Mayor, there is an agenda encouraging and helping older city dwellers to live healthy, active lifestyles.
