With age, people confront many challenges that impact their overall well-being and longevity. Attitudes towards growing older can determine how people age and may affect their quality of life. Additionally, societal attitudes towards growing older can define how people internalize the aging process. How can we alter individual and societal perceptions about aging to positively affect health and longevity? How have attitudes towards aging changed during the past decade? How can people successfully cope with the real challenges of getting older? Please join our expert panelists as they discuss the practical implications of their research.
