Media Highlights Featuring USC Leonard Davis Experts 
Harvard Business Review published two articles by Paul Irving, chairman of the Milken Institute Center for the Future of Aging and Distinguished Scholar in Residence at the USC Leonard Davis School. In the first feature, "When No One Retires," he examines what the rapidly aging global population means for employers and the workforce. In "The Longevity Opportunity," Irving looks at the buying power of older customers. The market for products and services for older adults is already strong, and it will become even stronger, he states. Forbes also featured Irving on the topic of investing in longevity science.

Next Avenue quoted Donna Benton of the USC Leonard Davis School on how family members and friends are crucial in caring for the nation’s aging population. “Caregivers are the backbone of our long-term care system. If we didn’t have family caregivers with unpaid help, our health care system would pretty much collapse,” Benton says.

Healthline recently quoted Cary Kreutzer, EdD, MPH, RDN, FAND, a registered dietitian and associate professor at the USC Leonard Davis School of Gerontology, on the importance of eating a plant-based diet and taking an individualized approach to supplementation for balancing nutrient deficiencies. 

The Llama Podcast featured Paul Irving, chairman of the Milken Institute Center for the Future of Aging and Distinguished Scholar in Residence at the USC Leonard Davis School, in an episode on how technological and scientific advancements have made aging more fulfilling. Irving states that if we are to realize the “longevity dividend,” society must play a bigger role in promoting healthy and purposeful aging.

Los Feliz Ledger columnist Stephanie Vendig discussed the recent USC Morton Kesten Summit on Transforming Homes and Communities to Support Healthy Aging: Innovations and Visions for the Future.
