Human Longevity: Symposium of the UC San Diego Center for Healthy Aging on June 6th, 2019

Thank you so much for attending the Symposium of the UC San Diego Center for Healthy Aging! Your participation meant a lot to us. 

What does it takes to live to 100 and beyond? To what extent do our genes really dictate longevity? What can we do to enhance successful aging? Are there any scientific strategies in the pipeline? What is the secret of a few regions in the world where there is a high concentration of people that live beyond 100 years old? These and many more fascinating questions were addressed during our annual Symposium of the UC San Diego Center for Healthy Aging held on June 6 at Atkinson Hall Auditorium on the UC San Diego campus.

This day-long event showcased the latest research on longevity and strategies to continue living a vibrant and thriving life at any age.
