Join the U.S. News Twitter Chat: #HealthyAging
U.S. News Health & Wellness is partnering with
Mayo Clinic, Albert Einstein College of Medicine and other leading experts to talk about how to stay healthy for the maximum number of years and how to stave off age-related diseases such as osteoarthritis, diabetes, heart disease and Alzheimer's.
WHAT: A live Twitter chat on healthy aging. Join the conversation by using the hashtag #HealthyAging.
WHEN: Wednesday, Oct. 23 at 1 p.m. ET.
WHY: We don't necessarily want to live to 90 if we feel 90. Living to 90 and feeling 70 is more like it. That's the difference between health span and life span: life span refers to how long we live, while health span is how long we live with the best possible health.
