Three former Surgeons General to tackle the future of aging and wellness at ICAA 2019 conference

What unique insights can three former Surgeons General of the United States share about the current and future state of aging and wellness in the nation? That question will be answered at ICAA 2019: Shaping the Future of Wellness, this year’s International Council on Active Aging Conference, Leadership Summit and Expo. The event will take place October 10-12, 2019, at the Gaylord Palms Resort and Convention Center in Orlando, Florida.

The US Surgeon General, known as the “Nation’s Doctor,” is the operational head of the US Public Health Service Commissioned Corps, and serves as the leading spokesperson on matters of public health in the federal government. The three Surgeons General – Richard H. Carmona (17th), M. Joycelyn Elders (15th) and Antonia C. Novello (14th) – having served at this highest level of America’s public health efforts, promise to bring powerful perspectives and their considerable experience to bear on the past, present and future of healthcare, health prevention, and personalized health and wellness in the US and worldwide. They will also share the challenges and opportunities of aging they face in their personal lives. All three physicians will participate as panelists in the General Session at the ICAA 2019 conference. Dr. William Shrank, Chief Medical and Corporate Affairs Officer for Humana, will moderate the session.

There will also be a special welcome video message from David Satcher, MD, PhD, 16th US Surgeon General (1998-2002), Founding Director and Senior Advisor, Satcher Health Leadership Institute, Morehouse School of Medicine.
