We live in a unique time in human history. Thanks to advances in science and technology over the last 100 years, many can expect to live well into their 80s and beyond. While this increased longevity has been a huge blessing, it unfortunately means we have a greater chance of developing a chronic disease like Alzheimer's, heart disease, or cancer. Long life is a gift, but to make the most of that gift, it's important to stay in good health for as long as possible.

As an organization, we are dedicated to helping people live longer, healthier lives. So it's always with great anticipation that we look forward to September, as it is Healthy Aging Month.

Healthy Aging Month provides an opportunity to educate on the importance of healthy aging so we can ensure our later years are not just more numerous, but lived in good health.

At the Alliance, we promote healthy aging in two ways: raising awareness about healthy aging research and producing educational materials to help people make informed decisions about their health.

For instance, our Healthspan Campaign has a Q & A feature with leading experts who explain how their research will lead to ways to extend healthy years of life and simultaneously postpone the harmful conditions of old age. There's also a short film called The Healthspan Imperative that shows the gamechanging potential of healthy aging research.

Of course, we can also be proactive and make lifestyle choices that will contribute to healthy aging. We have resources that can help you make wise decisions for your health, both right now and down the road.

Throughout the month, we'll be sharing these resources and interviews on Twitter, Facebook, and right here on this blog.
