Course Description

This course will provide an extensive literature review of the biological mechanisms of senescence and aging.  A detailed review will be presented of evidence-based lifestyle, dietary, and nutritional applications that may impact aging and longevity. Evaluation of risk factors that impact longevity and physiological mechanisms will be presented. The course will emphasize how to develop personalized dietary and lifestyle approaches to support healthy aging and longevity.

Learning Objectives

  1. Conduct a comprehensive review of the biology of senescence and aging.
  2. Review of the scientific literature for nutrients, dietary approaches, and lifestyle applications that impact biological aging and longevity.
  3. Clinical history, physical examination, and laboratory tests to identify risk factors that impact biological aging and longevity.
  4. Learn to develop an individualized and evidence-based clinical approach to optimize biological aging and longevity.
