By 2030, for the first time in recorded history, the old will begin to outnumber the young. The shift will cause significant social, economic, and health challenges – but it is also an unprecedented opportunity for research, innovation, and entrepreneurism to extend the human health span. The Healthy Longevity Global Competition will jumpstart momentum through a unique series of inducement awards and prizes – in pursuit of breakthroughs that will ultimately transform the way we age.
Join the National Academy of Medicine, and our global collaborators, for a reception Monday, October 21, 2019 in Washington, DC, to celebrate the launch of the NAM’s global competition to advance research and innovation in healthy longevity, part of our Healthy Longevity Global Grand Challenge alongside the Global Roadmap for Healthy Longevity.
