2024 Highlights

Keynote Presentation

S. Jay Olshansky, Ph.D. - Aging, Health, and Longevity in the 21st Century

The first longevity revolution began more than a century ago, and the gift humanity gave to itself as a result was 30 years of added life—from 50 to 80. The tradeoff was a rise in aging related diseases like cancer, heart disease, and Alzheimer's disease. Dr. Olshansky will explain why humans live as long as we do, and why this new effort to slow aging represents a shift in public health that should benefit generations to come.

S. Jay Olshansky, Ph.D. is a faculty member at the School of Public Health, University of Illinois at Chicago, Division of Epidemiology and Biostatistics. Named a Next Avenue Influencer in Aging, Dr. Olshansky researches upper limits to human longevity; health and public policy implications associated with individual and population aging.
