The Fourth Eurosymposium on Healthy Ageing (EHA) was held in Brussels on November 8-10, 2018, and we had the opportunity to give talks about aging, advocacy, and engaging new audiences.
The EHA is a conference hosted every two years by Heales, and it sees like-minded people from the research and advocacy community come together to share knowledge and listen to talks from various researchers and other experts in the field. We were very pleased to be invited to give two presentations during the conference and share our knowledge and experience with the audience there.
LEAF staff writer Nicola Bagalà gave a talk about the social issues relating to rejuvenation biotechnology, including the global need for longer, healthier lives, reasons for public skepticism, and the common pitfalls of advocacy.
Outreach Director Elena Milova was also at the conference and gave a talk about the ways in which rejuvenation biotechnology advocates can reach an audience of millions instead of hundreds. During the talk, she discusses the optimal ways in which to engage audiences, conduct activism, and engage in best practices based on our experiences in the field.
We hope you enjoy both of these talks, which are two more examples of how we are working hard to support the drive to end age-related diseases and make it a global topic of discussion.
