"Aging is far more than health and wealth," says Joe Coughlin. "Aging is a multi-disciplinary sport involving transportation, longevity planning, social engagement and work. It is a great challenge to society, families and government to ensure they can deliver on inventing a new stage of life for aging seniors."
In his book The Longevity Economy, Dr. Coughlin provides deep insight into a population that consistently defies expectations: people who, through their continued personal and professional ambition, desire for experience, and quest for self-actualization, are building a striking, unheralded vision of longer life that very few in business fully understand. His focus on women-they outnumber men, control household spending and finances, and are leading the charge toward tomorrow's creative new narrative of later life-is especially illuminating.
"Aging2.0 Boston is honored to host Dr. Joe Coughlin for a book signing and fireside chat," says Tim Driver, Boston Ambassador for Aging2.0 and CEO of RetirementJobs.com and Mature Caregivers. "Aging, caregiving and brain health are increasingly critical issues. Boston is well positioned as a hub of innovation in both technology and healthcare to tackle some of the biggest aging challenges and opportunities with experts like Dr. Coughlin."
