STANFORD CELEBRATES 10 YEARS OF DRIVING THE DISCUSSION ON LONGEVITY

In its first 10 years, the Stanford Center on Longevity helped expand discussion of the world’s aging population, making that discussion both more inclusive and more optimistic.

“We feel that if we apply the best of science and technology to solving the problems of longer lives, we can turn added life expectancies into a tremendous gift instead of a burden,” said Laura Carstensen, a professor of psychology and the center’s director.
