Fireside Chat & Book Signing with Dr. Joe Coughlin

March 1, 2018, 6 p.m.


Join us for a Fireside Chat with Dr. Joe Coughlin, Founder and Director of the MIT AgeLab, as he discusses his new book, The Longevity Economy, and explores innovative solutions to problems in aging. A discussion will be moderated by Boston Globe reporter Robert Weisman. 

In his book The Longevity Economy, Dr. Coughlin provides deep insight into a population that consistently defies expectations: people who, through their continued personal and professional ambition, desire for experience, and quest for self-actualization, are building a striking, unheralded vision of longer life that very few in business fully understand. His focus on women—they outnumber men, control household spending and finances, and are leading the charge toward tomorrow’s creative new narrative of later life—is especially illuminating.

Dr. Coughlin will be signing copies of his book. Light refreshments will be served.
