As new expectations and definitions of “old age” shake the foundations of society, one aging myth after another falls. Businesses are awakening to an “old world in need of a new vision.” This societal earthquake is happening at a time when technology and other key influencers are transforming our world at a dizzying pace. New ideas, inventions and industries are emerging with the potential to reinvent aging, wellness and health. While they seem futuristic, innovations that challenge our practices and models are already here. So, how do you thrive today and prepare to thrive tomorrow?
By attending this thought-provoking webinar, you will gain insights into how a new vision of healthy aging is unfolding. Explore everything from Transcendent Design and Augmented and Virtual Reality, to Genomics, Wearables, Artificial Intelligence, Robotics and Exoskeletons, to the 24/7-health model. Learn how these innovations are being implemented now and what directions they may go. The key question is: What will these things mean to you and your organization, now and in the future?
