Session type:

We are living longer—and healthier—than our predecessors thanks to dramatic advancements in health care over the last century. Now, thanks to technological innovations, the way we age is transforming from living longer to living better. With a simple swipe or tap of an app, information and services are available at our fingertips. This new economy of connections is what will enable us to live fuller lives as we age, and this presentation touches on important aspects of our lives: technology-driven transportation to help us stay mobile, improved ability to maintain social networks, apps to help us age in place, and technology to help us monitor our health at home.
