The Newtown Forest Association (NFA), Connecticut’s oldest private land trust, recently named Dr. Aaron Coopersmith to its Board of Directors.

A native of Newtown, Dr. Coopersmith recently returned home after pursuing his studies, to join the family chiropractic practice. He received his
undergraduate degree in Biology from Northeastern University in Boston, Massachusetts. While an undergraduate, Dr. Coopersmith earned “Key
Holder” status from the environmentally-conscious NUHOC Club. He was also active  in the University group Students for Environmental Action (SEA)
which sought to bring biodiesel to University vehicles. Aaron Coopersmith later attended the New York Chiropractice College in Seneca Falls where
he received his Doctor of Chiropractic degree.

Dr. Coopersmith’s first major initiative since joining the NFA Board has been the design and installation of a perimeter trail at the NFA’s Brunot
