The 2nd international 'Living to 100' Conference, hosted by the Centre for Healthy Brain Ageing (CHeBA), UNSW Sydney, will bring together experts from all over the world to unravel the secrets of successful ageing.

Our internationally acclaimed line up of speakers will deliberate on the latest research on exceptionally long-lived individuals, in particular centenarians and supercentenarians.

This two-day conference will comprise cutting edge research presentations on Friday and a synthesis of current knowledge on successful ageing suitable for the informed lay-person on Saturday.

Let us all strive to be one hundred, and we will lead healthy, social and productive lives, even if we fail to hit a century.
Professor Perminder Sachdev,
Co-Director CHeBA & Leader of CHeBA’s Sydney Centenarian Study
