The 2015 Healthy Aging Summit will specifically highlight the science of healthy aging and preventive services and identify policy gaps that can be pursued to improve the quality of life for older adults. A greater understanding of the social, environmental and emotional factors that influence health in the later years of life can improve quality of life and reduce health care costs.
- Explore the science on healthy aging;
- Identify knowledge gaps that need to be filled;
- Promote the role of prevention and preventive services in improving quality of life in later years; and
- Mobilize action to improve the delivery of care for those aging in place or in transition.
