About the Event

The topic this year is “Super Agers: Who are they and the impact of their longevity on their families, the economy and our healthcare system”. The Jenks is very honored to have Dr. Alexandra Tourtourlou of Harvard University and Massachusetts General Hospital as our keynote speaker who has been investigating the phenomenon of super aging since 2016.

Other speakers include Winchester Hospital addressing how healthcare institutions adapt to longevity in medical practice and their ability to prolong healthy living. Economist and Google scholar, Dr. Rainer Kotschy, provides insight into the potential impact to the labor market and economy because of super agers working longer years and its relevance to the solvency of social security/pension programs and Medicare.

Finally, we are pleased to announce that there will be a panel of super aging Jenks patrons with their families (children and grandchildren) to discuss the realities of living longer, how they exceeded expectations, their preparations for living longer and its impact on their families. Note there will be many community partners and supporting vendors at this event with tables offering information about their services. The Jenks is pleased to provide lunch to attendees. Registration is required for admittance and the center will be closed for all other activities.
