About this event

The deadline to RSVP for this event is September 8th at noon eastern time.

Ten years ago, it was 2012. President Joseph Biden was a vice president, the London Olympics were in full swing, and science was buzzing with the development of the Z-1 space suit and landing of the Curiosity Rover. In Boston, Massachusetts, Barbara Friedman and Elana Kieffer were conspiring and collaborating to build a local professionals network with connections to work in the field of aging and older adults. Fast forward ten years later to today - Boston is showing signs of a new sort of innovation cluster, an opportunity if you will, to transform into the Silicon Valley of aging. Barbara and Elana’s vision of a professional development organization became Boston Bridge, Inc., one of the longest continually-running organizations of its kind.

You are cordially invited to join the Board of Boston Bridge, Inc. and the MIT AgeLab in celebrating a decade of convening leaders, mentors and emerging professionals in the field of aging. Help us to shape the next decade ahead in the Longevity Hub amidst the transformation of an aging America.

Join us for a meaningful night of opportunities to network, a delicious light dinner (and cake!), comments by well-known people in the field of aging, awards, and a keynote speech from Founder and Director of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) AgeLab, Dr. Joseph F. Coughlin, PhD.
