Longevity, Health and Dementia: The Good, The Bad & The Ugly

Join us in person or virtually for this conversation-style forum by Stan Frochtzwajg, MD and David Lebell, MD on an update on actions we can take to help improve longevity, ways to slow or mitigate dementia, and improve ‘health span’—not just a longer life but more good years in which we are more physically and cognitively capable and engaged. Over the last five years, there has been considerable progress in the research and our understanding of these topics. We will discuss many of the eye-opening advances along with new insights into how known contributors to longevity, such as exercise, can be more effectively applied. Dr. Frochtzwajg will describe how he is incorporating this growing body of research into his family practice and finds himself focusing more of his time with his patients talking about these accessible modifications to their lives, which has the potential for a bigger impact on the patient’s health span than simply prescribing medication.
