Engaging and Educating the Public about Aging and Life Extension


Oliver Medvedik, Ph.D. / Lifespan Extension Advocacy Foundation - Vice President

Hey there, I am Dr. Oliver Medvedik, Vice President of For the first time in human history, we can consider bringing aging and age-related diseases under medical control to be a realistic goal.

Emerging life extension technologies could potentially free us from aging and age-related diseases, providing our children and even ourselves with extra years of healthy longevity, independence, and youthful appearance.

As part of our commitment to education our goal is to share evidence-based knowledge about aging and rejuvenation among the general public, the business sector, policymakers, and philanthropists. To achieve this goal we engage in a number of educational initiatives.
