The Economics of a Longevity Dividend

Monday, October 3, 2022 
11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. ET
See registration instructions above
Free for members; $25 registration for nonmembers

The growing emphasis on and progress in extending biological and “healthy” aging raises a number of important questions for health scientists and economists alike. Is it preferable to make lives healthier by compressing morbidity, or to make lives longer by extending life? What are the gains from targeting aging itself compared with efforts to eradicate specific diseases? Economist Andrew J. Scott, coauthor of The Economic Value of Targeting Aging, will share findings and implications from the publication. This public policy webinar from The Gerontological Society of America aims to draw awareness to the many ways geroscience intersects across all disciplines as well as impacts policy. 

Presented by:  

  • Andrew J. Scott, DPhil, Professor of Economics, Consulting Scholar, Stanford University Center on Longevity, and Research Fellow at the Centre for Economic Policy Research
  • George E. Taffet, MD, FACP,  Professor in Medicine, Geriatrics, and Cardiovascular Sciences and the Robert J. Luchi, MD, Chair in Geriatric Medicine, Baylor College of Medicine; Head of the Division of Geriatrics, Houston Methodist Hospital; 2022 Chair, GSA Public Policy Advisory Panel  (Moderator)

If you are looking for pilot funding for your next research project, you might consider one of the National Institute on Aging’s (NIA) more than 120 Centers and Networks. This alphabet soup of organizations are known by their acronyms, eponyms, and initialisms: RCCN, ADRC, D&E, OAIC, NSC, RCMAR, Roybal, AITC, and IMPACT. To begin to peel back the curtain on these many organizations, representatives from NIA and a Network designed to coordinate the various Centers will meet to give a high-level overview of NIA Centers and how to stay informed about the opportunities they offer for researchers in the field of aging.
