The Frank Benedikt Roehr Memorial Lecture Series

The Self-healing Personality and the Longevity Project 

Presented by Howard S. Friedman

Distinguished Professor, University of California, Riverside
Editor-in-Chief, Encyclopedia of Mental Health (Elsevier)
Immediate Past President, Western Psychological Association
James McKeen Cattell Fellow, Association for Psychological Science


MET Auditorium, UC San Diego
May 18, 5:30 pm

Why do some people thrive well into old age while others falter, become ill or die young? What can you do to increase the odds that you will live a long and healthy life?

Please join us for the next Frank Benedikt Roehr Memorial Lecture with Dr. Howard S. Friedman and learn more about The Longevity Project that seeks to find some answers to these questions.

The Frank Benedikt Roehr Memorial Lecture Series was the inspiration of Suzanne Angelucci as a memorial to her father and is intended to support public education by funding lectures that focus on the power of humor and positive thinking and its influence on healthy aging and longevity.

Howard S. Friedman is Distinguished Professor at the University of California, Riverside. For his work on "changing how we think about the nature of health," he received the James McKeen Cattell Award from the Association for Psychological Science (APS), a top career award for applied scientific research. His research on disease-prone and self-healing personalities (terms he coined) led to the Outstanding Contributions to Health Psychology senior award from the American Psychological Association. His award-winning book, The Longevity Project [praised by Malcolm Gladwell and Dr. Andrew Weil], summarizes his 25-year scientific study of the pathways to health and long life. 

Dr. Friedman will discuss his research, including positive traits and characteristics that lead to longevity as well as emerging findings busting common myths about healthy aging.
