Event details:

We are approaching a watershed moment in human history. By 2030, the number of people over 65 will surpass the number of children under 15. To the extent that people arrive at old age mentally sharp, physically fit, and financially secure, long-lived societies will thrive. This talk will focus on “longevity science”-- the ways science and technology offer alternatives to catastrophic predictions about societies that are overburdened by frail elders. Learn about advances in science that can form the basis of a culture in which we improve quality of life at all ages.
