Healthy longevity is challenging in modern times. We are less likely to have a support team in close proximity.
“We have more people living longer without this infrastructure or support of extended families. People are having fewer kids, and those kids are less likely to be geographically approximate to where they are.”
Living longer better is more than just genetics. Where you live matters significantly.
“We need to find a way to successfully age. Your genetics only account for 30% of your longevity. It’s more about those social determinants of health we hear about. It’s lifestyle, it’s environment, it’s social connection, it’s physical wellbeing, it’s financial wellbeing, it’s being engaged in your community.”
Ryan has worked with Johns Hopkins University, Stanford University, AARP, LeadingAge, and more, and has been featured on CBS News, Forbes, The Washington Post and more. If you’d like to learn more about Ryan, visit Here.
