Date:8/25/2009

This September, as senior citizens across the nation take a collective step to improve their health through exercise and increased activity, the world's leading experts in aging science will gather to present breakthrough scientific research that may unlock the secret to living longer and healthier lives.

Cambridge, MA (Vocus) August 25, 2009 -- This September, as senior citizens across the nation take a collective step to improve their health through exercise and increased activity, the world's leading experts in aging science will gather to present breakthrough scientific research that may unlock the secret to living longer and healthier lives.

Active Aging Week, from Monday, Sept. 21 through Sunday, Sept. 27, promotes the benefits of a healthy lifestyle among older adults on a national scale, and coincides with the first ever Aging & Healthy Lifespan Conference on Wednesday, Sept. 23 at Harvard Medical School.

The timing of the conference is significant as researchers and regular citizens alike set out to accomplish the same goal - to find ways to live longer, healthier lives. Over the next 20 years, the population over age 65 is expected to double, and with it, healthcare spending is expected to rise by 25 percent.

Award-winning researchers and bestselling authors at the Aging & Healthy Lifespan Conference will present emerging research that could realize this vision of healthy aging, as well as lifestyle and demographic trends of our aging population on two speaker tracks. Presenters include:

 
  • David Ewing Duncan, award-winning journalist and best-selling author of seven books, including The Experimental Man, a Chief Correspondent for public radio's "Biotech Nation," a longtime commentator for NPR's "Morning Edition," and the Director of the Center for Life Science Policy and a Visiting Researcher at the Graduate School of Journalism at the University of California, Berkley.
  • Michael F. Roizen, M.D., Co-Founder of RealAge and award-winning, #1 New York Times bestselling author and co-author of five books in the RealAge series, including RealAge: Are You as Young as You Can Be? and YOU: The Owner's Manual: An Insider's Guide to the Body that Will Make You Healthier and Younger, co-authored with Dr. Mehmet Oz.
  • David Sinclair, Ph.D., Sirtris Co-Founder, Scientific Advisory Board Co-Chair and Associate Professor of Pathology at Harvard Medical School and key contributor to the scientific understanding of sirtuins and resveratrol, the key ingredient in red wine that researchers believe has the power to slow symptoms of aging.

The conference will also feature insight from leading research and advocacy associations, such as the American Federation for Aging Research (AFAR), which has been on the forefront of revolutionary approaches to the science of healthier aging for the past 28 years.

The Aging & Healthy Lifespan Conference is sponsored by Pure Communications, the American Federation for Aging Research and Merriman Curhan Ford. Registration is now open for the conference, which will be held on Wednesday, Sept. 23 from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. in the Joseph B. Martin Conference Center in Harvard Medical School. Guests can learn more about the conference or register online by visiting, www.healthylifespanconference.com.
