Join Clinical Professor Alexander Cohen for this unique public talk. This is a rare opportunity to hear about the broader issues of health in the 21st century from a practitioner, academic and researcher. Alexander Cohen is a Clinical Professor of Medicine and a former Chancellor at UWA. In an illustrious career he was Director of Clinical Training at Hollywood Private Hospital and Director of Postgraduate Medical Education at Sir Charles Gairdner Hospital. Professor Cohen is a past President of the Royal Australasian College of Physicians and the Australian Medical Association (WA), a Fellow of the Australian Medical Association and Wolfson College Oxford, and a past Research Fellow of Harvard University Medical School. Longevity - a healthy choice? Are we ageing reasonably? Is our body outliving our brain? Discover why longevity is increasing almost exponentially in the First World. In 1976, there were 5000 people over a hundred years old in the United States; today there are over 75,000. The economic and social consequences of such an increase cannot be ignored, nor can we simply assume that it is desirable without question. Learn the reasons for this increased longevity, including lifestyle, chemical, and genetic factors. We have access to a bundles of additives, supplements, and stimulants but we may not be using them wisely. Join in the discussion on how to live life to the fullest.
