Los Angeles Times Festival of Books: USC panel
People are living longer than ever, but are we living well? As the average life span increases, new questions emerge about aging and quality of life. Pinchas Cohen, dean of the USC Davis School of Gerontology, will moderate a discussion about the distinction between simply surviving and truly thriving as we age, with Lucio Comai, a USC Keck professor who researches the molecular basis of human aging; Laura Mosqueda, an MD known for her expertise in care for older adults; and Murali Nair, a clinical professor at the USC School of Social Work and an affiliate faculty member with the USC Edward R. Roybal Institute on Aging who researches alternative health systems and gerontology.
