Video from Stanford's longevity roundtable now available

Over the next three decades, the number of people older than 65 in the United States will double from 40 million to 80 million. The effects of that huge shift were discussed at the Stanford 2010 Roundtable, which was titled “Generation Ageless: Longevity and the Boomers.” Journalist Tom Brokaw moderated for the session, and he was joined by Laura Carstensen, PhD; John Hennesy, PhD; Sandra Day O’Connor, JD; Barry Rand; Sheryl Sandberg; and Robert Saplosky, PhD. Excerpts from their conversation is above, and the full roundtable is available here.
