The future of wellness, health and longevity: She said, he said Presenters: Dr. Ken & Maddy Dychtwald
Date: Tuesday, October 31
Time: 8:45 a.m.–10:00 a.m.

Increased longevity may be one of civilization’s greatest accomplishments but might become its biggest challenge. Left “undirected,” the ensuing age wave could cause: a misalignment of many aspects of society from pensions to playgrounds; pandemics of degenerative diseases such as heart disease, cancer and Alzheimer’s; and a gerontocracy that could spark political age wars. Due to the convergence of rising longevity, declining fertility, the aging of the global baby boom and the impact of COVID-19, every dimension of health and healthcare—as well as aging and longevity—is being transformed. Join powerhouse duo Maddy and Ken Dychtwald for a stimulating look at what may lie ahead.

Since the Dychtwalds founded Age Wave nearly 40 years ago, they’ve collectively written 23 books, produced numerous films and documentaries, and presented before nearly three million people globally. In addition, their cutting-edge research has garnered more than 20 billion media impressions.

You’ll be able to:

  • Discover how long might we live—and the difference between women versus men.
  • Learn whether our later years will be a time of health and vitality or illness and disability—and what are the different determining factors for women versus men.
  • Determine the advances that are needed in diagnostics, medical/nursing skills, public health, wellness, preventive and rehab fitness, functional nutrition and a myriad of scientific breakthroughs to ensure that our healthspans and brainspans better match our lifespans—and how this will affect women versus men.
  • Discuss whether healthy longevity will be available for everyone or if various flavors of super-longevity will only be available to the very wealthy.

Faculty: Ken Dychtwald, PhD, Psychologist, Gerontologist, Author, and Founder and CEO, Age Wave; and Maddy Dychtwald, BA, Author, Speaker, Thought Leader, and Cofounder and Senior Vice President, Age Wave.
