Event description
Discussion by David Sinclair on his new book "Lifespan: Why we Age and Why We Don't Have To"

About this Event

From an acclaimed Harvard professor and one of Time’s most influential people, this paradigm shifting book shows how almost everything we think we know about aging is wrong, offers a front-row seat to the amazing global effort to slow, stop, and reverse aging, and calls readers to consider a future where aging can be treated.

LIFESPAN provides a road map for taking charge of our own health destiny and a bold new vision for the future when humankind is able to live to be 100 years young.
