The second international Living to 100 Conference 2018, hosted by CHeBA, was held on 7th and 8th September at ICC Sydney, Darling Harbour. The two-day event included 13 sessions presented by 30+ world-leading experts on longevity and healthy ageing, with updates on worldwide centenarian studies; latest research in the fields of demography, neuropathology/imaging, genetics/epigenomics, economics, blue zones, artificial intelligence and more; evidence-based recommendations for healthy ageing and an interview with a panel of centenarians and near-centenarians discussing their secrets to living a long and happy life. The conference ended with an engaging debate: 'Can We Live to 150 Years of Age'?
Thanks to everyone involved — the speakers, the panel of centenarians and near-centenarians (Tom Sample, Michael Harvey, Helena Goldstein and Eileen Kramer), media partners Australian Ageing Agenda and HelloCare, volunteers and attendees — for helping make this conference an extraordinary success.
