Bay Area experts on aging: New research and resources for health journalists

01/29/08     San Francisco, CA

The panel will present an update on cutting-edge news, research, and innovations in longevity and aging currently being developed in the San Francisco Bay Area.

The speakers will be the widely respected psychologist Laura L. Carstensen, director of the new Stanford Center on Longevity, which focuses on how increased life-expectancy can improve quality of life at all ages, and Martin Lynch, CEO of Lifelong Medical Care in Berkeley, the comprehensive health plan that grew out of the Gray Panthers' Over 60 Clinic. Both speakers are nationally recognized for their achievements and will focus on the challenges ahead in research and practice innovations as boomers become elders.

The panel will be moderated by Bay Area journalist Paul Kleyman, editor of the American Society on Aging's publication Aging Today and the national coordinator of the Journalists Exchange on Aging. Kleyman knows this topic thoroughly and will provide insider's tips about how to report effectively and compellingly on aging and related health issues.
