Media Highlights Featuring USC Leonard Davis Experts 

The Today Show's Maria Shriver visited the USC Leonard Davis School and interviewed Todd Morgan about the need for more clinical research on the benefits of intermittent fasting.

Korea Biomedical Review reported a talk given by USC Leonard Davis School of Gerontology Dean Pinchas Cohen at the Korea Healthcare Congress on “personalized aging” and a USC-created app to predict longevity. “USC Longevity predicts current life expectancy [and] provides incentives for adoption of a healthy lifestyle to improve life expectancy and help in financial planning,” he said. Korea Biomedical Review also quoted Cohen on the health risks of spending too much time sitting. “Sitting is the new smoking. It’s almost universally bad. It’s time to quit,” Cohen said.

Daily Mail (UK) featured research by Alexandra Ycaza Herrera of the USC Leonard Davis School on how hormone replacement therapy may protect menopausal women from stress-related memory loss. “‘Although more research is needed, this may make estrogen therapy more attractive as a treatment for menopausal symptoms as well as a potential preventative strategy against a host of other age-related declines,” she said. Economic Times (India) also featured the research.
