National Academy of Medicine Symposium (and Reception)

The National Academy of Medicine’s Global Roadmap for Healthy Longevity report provides guidance to societies on how to create more years of good health through strengthening their social infrastructure, physical environment, health systems, and opportunities for education, work, and retirement. Good health in turn, increases social, human, and economic capital. Members of the international commission will present on why an all-of-society, multi-sectoral approach is needed to achieve healthy longevity for all people.

Note: Reception immediately following the symposium.
