Cohen on Big Business of Aging, Power of Universities

Dean of the USC Leonard Davis School of Gerontology and 2016 NPEA guest speaker Dr. Pinchas Cohen published an essay for the Milken Institute and the PBS Next Avenue series on how universities drive innovation in aging. 

"In the 21st century, the challenge for researchers and industry is to focus not just on lifespans— how long we live—but also on healthspans, or how well we live," Cohen writes. "Continued university breakthroughs help to advance many new consumer technologies with the potential to make lives easier for older adults, such as self-driving cars, robotic assistants, and digital apps for health monitoring and assessment."
