Honors Colloquium on April 4 to Examine Societal Implications of Longevity

Medical science will make it possible for human beings to live 110 to 120 years and beyond by the end of this century. But while scientists race to find out if they can extend life, society should consider what the consequences might be. Dr. Donald Louria, professor of preventive medicine and community health, University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey, New Jersey Medical School, will discuss the topic "Creating Very Old People: Individual Blessing or Societal Disaster?” on April 4, 2005, 11:30 a.m.-1 p.m in the Campus Center Ballroom. The colloquium is free and open to the public.
