What unique perspectives do four Surgeons General of the United States bring to the dialogue about aging, health and active aging? Come and hear this panel discussion featuring four physicians who have served at the apex of America’s public health efforts and helped shape the health of a nation. These leaders will focus on the past, present and future of healthcare, health prevention, personalized health, and wellness. Gain insight, too, into the Surgeons General’s views as they face the challenges and opportunities of aging in their personal lives.

The panel members will delve into the public health successes and challenges of the past on aging-related issues, as well as the multidisciplinary issues and challenges that face an aging population today. These leaders will look at what is happening in the US and in other countries worldwide to address the health and well-being of older populations. And they will point to directions in which aging, health and active aging are heading--along with what needs to happen to achieve that future.
