Longevity has created an innovation imperative. In aging services and other fields, we have a chance to think creatively about design, technology and behavior to shape quality of life across an ever extending lifetime. Opportunity lies in envisioning a future where people will not only live longer, but thrive. Expanding the world of possibilities for aging is a vision mixed with optimism and urgency as design and discovery stretch to keep pace with the demands and demographics of tomorrow. Joseph Coughlin is director of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology AgeLab.

Dr. Coughlin teaches policy and systems innovation as well as a new course on social media and information seeking behaviors in health and finance.
