Healthspan or the extension of a healthy lifespan is a topic about which we are very passionate. But what makes it so important? We've made a series of short videos to communicate why we believe the extension of healthspan is such an important priority.

1.  We are living longer. That's the good news. But the bad news? This comes with an increase in chronic disease.

  

 

2.  This means that health care costs will spiral out of control unless something is done to stem the tide.

 

3. We do have hope. Aging research experts are working to find ways to slow aging, so we can age healthier.

 

4. The positive effects of extending healthspan are immense. That's why we need to make
it our imperative.

So, there you have it. Extending healthspan represents the best way to tackle the challenges presented by an aging population.  

For a more indepth look at this issue, we invite you to watch our full-length film The Healthspan Imperative.
