Registration Now Open: Rising to the Challenge – Healthy Aging Forum 2022

2022/01/11


Dear colleagues & friends,


We are delighted to announce that WuXi AppTec, Singapore’s Agency for Science, Technology and Research (A*STAR) and Davos Alzheimer’s Collaborative (DAC) will join efforts to co-host “Rising to the Challenge: Healthy Aging Forum 2022” to support the United Nations Decade of Healthy Aging 2021-2030 initiative. The event will take place virtually on Jan 11, 2022 during the J.P. Morgan 40th Annual Healthcare Conference.

 

Aging is a global challenge. One in six people in the world will be aged 65 years or over by 2050 according to the United Nations. As we enter this new era of a longer lifespan, scientific advances and global collaborations will be key in addressing the unique health challenges of the elderly and their communities.
