Latest Paper Published Online

My new journal article titled "Aging, Equality and the Human Healthspan" is now available online here.  A sample from the conclusion:

Aspiring to increase the healthspan, vs. merely delaying death, could constitute an innovative approach to human health and help us realize the noble aspiration of “adding life to years” vs. “adding years to life”. Given where the science is today, the goal of a century of disease-free life is a realistic and compelling aspiration. The priority should be on making an applied gerontological intervention a top public health priority for the world’s aging populations. If we do this, then the 2 billion persons over age 60 by the year 2050 could enjoy more health and a compression of disease, frailty, and disability.
