Media Highlights Featuring USC Leonard Davis Experts 

Time quoted USC Leonard Davis Distinguished Scholar in Residence Paul Irving on why cities can help promote longer life. “We all long to bump into each other,” said Irving, who is the chairman of the Milken Institute Center for the Future of Aging. “The ranges of places where this can happen in cities tend to create more options and opportunities.”

Science quoted USC University Professor Caleb Finch on the extraordinarily low mortality of naked mole rats. “At advanced ages, their mortality rate remains lower than any other mammal that has been documented,” Finch said. Smithsonian and National Post (Canada) also cited the comments.

NPR quoted Jennifer Ailshire of the USC Leonard Davis School on whether Senator Dianne Feinstein’s age will impact her ability to serve in Congress.

The Times (UK) featured Professor Valter Longo of the USC Leonard Davis School of Gerontology and his recommendations for a diet encouraging a longer and healthier life.

California Healthline quoted Donna Benton of the USC Leonard Davis School’s Family Caregiver Support Center on why it is easier to take paid family leave for a planned event, like the birth of a child, instead of a family member’s illness.
