A remarkable possibility deserves more attention: just a few decades into the future, lifespans may be significantly extended, with people being in a good state of health throughout. This subject includes the scientific basis for age reversal interventions, the social implications of widespread adoption of these treatments, the moral case for accelerating these interventions, and actions that can be taken in support of that outcome.
Some general courses covering longevity:
- The Longevity Education Hub: “Longevity Medicine courses were developed by a group of physicians and scientists to facilitate the adoption of biomarkers of aging and longevity, as well as the latest advances in aging research in the medical community. A consortium of scientists and medical doctors have collaborated to define the new field of longevity medicine.”
