    CONVERSATION - Conversations are panel discussions that provide an in-depth, up-to-the-minute look at a single topic. Featuring three to four thought leaders and an expert moderator, Conversations consist of a 60-minute discussion, followed by 15 minutes of audience q-and-a.

    Advancements in healthcare mean that not only is it possible for us to live to 100, it’s quite likely. But what comes along with this new lease on life? How does a longer lifespan affect everything from how we invest our money to how the workforce changes? What happens to our social circles? And how does it shift our perception of time itself? This Conversation will dive into the nuances associated with longer life spans and how we can shift our thinking to prepare.
