If you have a generous budget, an abundance of time and a quest to travel the world – and your interest is in learning about subjects related to aging and longevity, here is a short round up of conferences for you in 2015. Each year, as I weed out these events, I’m bamboozled by the abundance of choice; and like last year I have avoided giving you the super-niche topics and overly commercial-oriented programs on offer.
Some of these conferences are still asking for abstract submissions, so if you have the inclination to participate now’s the time. Yes, the Business of Aging and Longevity continues – rich with promise!
