Why do some 60-year-olds look/feel 40, and some 40-year-olds look/feel 60? Telomeres and telomerase have much to do with it, and they're under our control — at least partly! Please join Nobel biochemist Dr. Elizabeth Blackburn and health psychologist Dr. Elissa Epel as they discuss key elements of their new book The Telomere Effect — A Revolutionary Approach to Living Younger, Healthier, & Longer.
Elizabeth Blackburn is president of the Salk Institute for Biological Studies and winner of the 2009 Nobel Prize in Physiology/Medicine. Elissa Epel is founding director of UCSF's Center on Obesity Assessment, Study, and Treatment. Their discussion will be moderated by syndicated talk-show host Angie Coiro.
