April 19 - Dr. Michael Thaler: “Current Health Issues: Care, Cure, Costs”

Ongoing developments in information technology drive revolutionary advances in molecular genetics, robotics, and computer imaging that deliver longer, healthier, more productive, and occasionally more stressful lives. Dr. Michael Thaler, Professor Emeritus at UCSF, will discuss developments of special interest to the older population, including novel strategies against the main causes of chronic disability and mortality, emerging evidence-driven diagnostic and therapeutic practices, organizational changes in delivery of health care, and the economic and regulatory infrastructure to support these transformations.

April 26 - Jay Bell: “Reimagining Retirement: Not Retiring from Something - Retiring TO Something”

In 2015, the concept of retirement is in a state of flux and transition. With Americans living longer and healthier lives today, they face new challenges that no generation has ever faced in such numbers. The very word retirement is becoming irrelevant to more and more people.

In his speeches and workshop sessions, Jay Bell offers inventive and exciting alternatives to conventional retirement. In his own transition from a successful professional in the field of creative business communications, Bell is newly committed to helping current and prospective retirees chart a new journey to freedom. The focus is not on financial planning, but on re-imagining life goals and translating those goals into creative, fulfilling, and balanced lives.
