Media Highlights Featuring USC Leonard Davis Experts 

PBS Next Avenue named USC Leonard Davis School Dean Pinchas Cohen and alumnae Gretchen Alkema and Kathy Black to its 2017 list of top 50 “Influencers in Aging.”

KPCC-FM’s “Take Two” interviewed Donna Benton of the USC Leonard Davis School about how to better prepare older adults for crisis situations.

The New York Times and The Washington Post (in an Associated Press story) quoted Caroline Cicero of the USC Leonard Davis School about evacuation plans for older adults and how this group will cope with traumatic losses due to the wildfires in Northern California. “This situation has been so tragic on so many levels,” Cicero said. “Couples who have been living together for 30, 40, 50 years, especially in their 80s and 90s, definitely might have just realized this is the end. ‘There is nothing we can do, so we’ll go out together,’ which is a beautiful thing. But it’s tragic for those left behind.”

CNBC quoted Sebastian Brandhorst of the USC Leonard Davis School on how a fasting-mimicking diet tricks the human body. The story also cited research by Valter Longo of the USC Leonard Davis School.
