New York Times Reporter Natasha Singer tried on AGNES, AgeLab’s Age Gain Now Empathy System, when she interviewed the lab about technologies for older adult wellness. The story ran on the front page of the Business Section of the Sunday New York Times. As the 65+ cohort experiences rapid growth, labs like AgeLab are receiving increased media attention for their relevant research. In the article, lab Director Joe Coughlin discusses his insights into the “longevity paradox” – how people in developed countries are living significantly longer, yet do not have the institutions and industries to support their well-being in those extra years.
The New York Times also created a video on AgeLab. That, as well as the online version of the article, can be found here.
