UCLA conference to address technology's impact on successful aging Oct. 29
Date:9/17/2010

While aging impacts everyday living in many ways, the latest technologies in the medical, consumer and lifestyle fields have the potential to help older adults live better for longer.

The UCLA Center on Aging's third annual "UCLA Technology and Aging Conference: Science Changing Lives," will feature national academic and industry leaders who will explore cutting-edge innovations affecting every aspect of life, from video games for seniors and remote health monitoring to medical robotics and the latest imaging tools for diagnosis and disease management.

The one-day symposium takes place Friday, Oct. 29, at the Skirball Cultural Center in Los Angeles.

Designed for older adults, their families and caregivers, the conference will provide information about the latest developments to help enhance the quality of life of seniors. Many speakers at the conference have been featured in the national media for their research and work.

"Every year, we explore how the latest technological innovations and medical advances can help us age more successfully," said Dr. Gary Small, UCLA's Parlow-Solomon Professor on Aging and director of the UCLA Center on Aging. "It's a great opportunity to learn from leading experts in the field."

Dr. Joseph F. Coughlin, founder and director of the AgeLab at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, will present the morning keynote address.

During lunch, Small, who is also a professor of psychiatry at the Semel Institute for Neuroscience and Human Behavior at UCLA, will give an overview of how technology has enhanced the field of psychiatry and what to expect in the future.

An afternoon keynote by Gerald Kominski, professor of health services and director of the Health Economics and Evaluation Research Program at the UCLA Center for Health Policy Research, will address how health care reform will impact the lives of seniors.
