Is 80 the New 40?

Tuesday, March 8
8:00 – 9:15 am

Mind-boggling advances in science and technology are beginning to impact lives — and lifespan — so significantly that in a matter of decades, 80 could be the new 40. From genomic sequencing and predictive lifespan analytics, to cutting edge developments that increasingly enable us to manage healthcare, we are standing at the threshold of a transformation in our aging society.

This two-part session will explore the implications on the senior living sector — including how recent breakthroughs will impact the profile, needs and expectations of the resident of the future — closing with first-hand insights into the tools and technologies that are rocking the world of aging.

Keynote Speaker: Brian K. Kennedy, PhD, is the President & CEO of The Buck Institute. He has an international reputation for his work in the basic biology of aging. Extensively published, he is well known for his work with Leonard Guarente PhD, which led to the discovery that Sirtuins (SIR2) modulate aging.

Great leadership comes down to the effective use of personal power. Learn how the best leaders use behavioral tools that are scientifically associated with positive biochemistry and executive brain function — how those leaders benefit entire organizations and relationships — and how these skills translate into high levels of employee and patient satisfaction.

Based on their acclaimed research across seven continents, as well as their national best-selling books, “LeaderShock” and “How We Choose to Be Happy — the 9 Choices of Extremely Happy People”, Greg Hicks and Rick Foster will show you how to integrate the 9-step FosterHicks system into your leadership life to increase your own physical and emotional well-being, and boost the overall performance of the organizations you lead.

At the conclusion of the program, you will walk out with a customized leadership plan that is specific, concrete and actionable.
