A reexamination of aging: Living longer, happier, and healthier

April 24th @ 1:00 pm - 1:45 pm

A Dr. Lawrence H. and Roberta Cohn Forum 

Thanks to advances in medicine and technology, middle-aged and younger people in many countries can anticipate living years longer than previous generations. But what do these additional years imply for personal health, finances, relationships, and sense of purpose — and for societal structures and public policy? In this panel discussion, experts will explore what it means not just to age, but to live long and well, both for individuals and for their communities.
