The NUS Yong Loo Lin School of Medicine, together with Prof. Brian Kennedy and Prof. Andrea Maier are proud to be hosting the Healthy Longevity webinar series.
In this Healthy Longevity series, we envision a gamut of disciplines from academic research to industrial markets to address critical healthcare concerns in the world today. These strategies broadly include (but are not limited to):
* Surpassing treatment of individual diseases to healthspan and lifespan extension
* Veering the focus of managing isolated diseases to preventing multiple diseases..
Ageing is the primary driver of chronic diseases in older and elderly individuals. Poor ageing is characterized by reduced or impaired function of multiple organ systems, including the cardiorespiratory, metabolic, immune and musculoskeletal systems.
The current model of clinical medicine is reactive and disease-centric, focusing on secondary and tertiary treatment of age-related diseases. With the burgeoning ageing populations across the world, including Singapore, this prevailing approach may not be the most efficient method of alleviating the current health care burden.
Healthcare cost is a ticking time bomb for ageing!
This virtual series will bring together highly-esteemed and prominent speakers from a wide range of fields associated with ageing, spanning from large and small biotech industries to academic institutions. You will hear revolutionary insights from experts on the growing and evolving science of ageing. As well, be informed of the prospects of combatting and preventing the debilitating ageing process through multi-disciplinary and integrated approaches aimed at extending both healthspan and lifespan.
We cordially invite you to join us in this exciting line-up of events. Hope to see you then.
