Although the demographic revolution has produced hundreds of millions people aged 65 and older, a substantial segment of that population is not enjoying the benefits of extended healthspan. Many live with multiple chronic conditions and disabilities that Erode the quality of life. The consequences are also costly for society. In the United States, the most costly 5% of Medicare beneficiaries account for approximately 50% of Medicare's expenditures. This perspective summarizes a recent workshop on biomedical approaches to best extend healthspan as way to reduce age-related dysfunction and disability. We further specify the action items necessary to unite health professionals, scientists, and the society to partner around the exciting and palpable opportunities to extend healthspan.
