Journal Club Opens Its Doors to All Lifespan Heroes


As many of you recover from enjoying Thanksgiving, we want to give a small update to the people we are most thankful to: our monthly patrons, the Lifespan Heroes.

Without the continued support of the Heroes, quite simply, we could not continue to do the work we do; we could not report on the latest aging research news, produce the X10 show, host online events like AMAs and Webinars with researchers, or continue to support the drive to end age-related diseases through the many other things we do here.

Being a non-profit organization, the support of our Heroes is vital, and, as a way of showing our appreciation, we have decided to offer access to the monthly Journal Club, hosted by Dr. Oliver Medvedik and streamed live to our Facebook page, to all Lifespan Heroes regardless of which tier of support they have chosen.

We want to show our thanks for the support that the Lifespan Heroes give and also hope that by opening the door to more people, the Journal Club becomes an even more valuable community resource and a place to share ideas and discuss the latest research publications.

If you are a Lifespan Hero and would like to take part in the next Journal Club, please get in touch with us, and we will let you know how to connect with the next call. If you are not currently a Lifespan Hero and are interested in joining us for the Journal Club, check out the Lifespan Heroes page to find out more.
