Living Longer, Living Better: Public Health Perspectives on Aging and Longevity

By 2050, for the first time in history, the number of people worldwide age 65 or older will be greater than the number of people under age 5.

The world's population is aging, and with this shift comes challenges for the workforce, for families, for education, and for health care systems. Yet research by world-renowned experts at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health is bringing new insight to the hows and whys of age- related diseases, the social and individual conditions that lead to healthy aging, and other factors involved in the emerging phenomenon of global population aging. We invite you to join us for a reception and panel discussion moderated by Dean Michelle A. Williams and featuring Harvard Chan School faculty experts sharing their latest research on Alzheimer's, the economy, and more.
