Join us for a virtual conversation with neuroscientist and bestselling author Dr. Daniel J. Levitin and Bob Weir, one of the founding members of the legendary band Grateful Dead, on January 13 at 7pm PT. They will discuss the paperback release of Dr. Levitin’s bestselling book, SUCCESSFUL AGING: A Neuroscientist Explores the Power and Potential of Our Lives.
During the pandemic, maintaining healthy habits, creating new structures and outlets for creativity and purpose, and focusing on new and safe ways to connect with loved ones have all taken on more importance than ever. SUCCESSFUL AGING is a powerful new approach to how we can think about our entire lives, and revolutionizes the way we look for life fulfillment as individuals, family members, and citizens. With a combination of medical developments and lifestyle choices, Levitin shows us how we can lead more creative, satisfying lives—now, and as we grow older.
