The U.S. population is getting older - and living longer.
This is expected to produce a "Silver Tsunami" of costly chronic diseases and disabilities of aging.
Finding a way to avert this impending disaster will be this country's next great priority.
This film shares how experts are working toward discoveries that could alter the aging process and postpone or even prevent chronic diseases.
"The Healthspan Imperative explores one of our country's biggest challenges," says Sue Peschin, MHS, Alliance president and CEO.
"Chronic diseases of aging are a tremendous threat to not only our health care system, but to the well-being of older adults and their family caregivers. As this film shows, research into the underlying biological process of aging has the potential to extend healthy years of life, but only if we increase our federal investment. The most effective strategy in 'bending the cost curve' in health care will be preventing age-related chronic diseases in the first place."
