That's what more than 300 members and guests learned at a presentation by Dr. Pinchas Cohen and Helen Dennis at the Palos Verdes Golf Club October 17, 2017.
Dr. Cohen is the Dean of USC’s Davis School of Gerontology, holds the William and Sylvia Kugel Dean's Chair in Gerontology and serves as the executive director of the Ethel Percy Andrus Gerontology Center. He has advanced the concept of personalized aging to ensure that extended lifespans are spent in good health.
Helen Dennis, a nationally recognized leader on issues of aging, employment and retirement, is well known to the South Bay community for her weekly syndicated column, Successful Aging, with a readership of over 1.6 million. PBS recently named her one of the top 50 Influencers in Aging. She also is a Board member of the Peninsula Village.
Guests at the presentation also had a chance to learn about various services that are available in the community, from representatives who helped sponsor the event.
