'Longevity' Meeting in Chicago, March 13

Greetings,

I am pleased to inform you about upcoming 'human longevity' meeting in Chicago:

What: Lecture and Discussion "Mortality at Advanced Ages" (session A4)
When: Tuesday, March 13, 2012, 1:45 p.m. - 3:00 p.m.
Where: Chicago, Illinois (Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Illinois, 300 East Randolph Street), Training Room 3

Logistic details:

For those who are interested, the meeting will be followed by informal discussion, which will become increasingly informal by 5:15 p.m. (cocktail reception) and even more so later by 5:45 p.m. (dinner).

Suggested topics for informal discussions after the lecture: two new related publications of the Wall Street Journal about human longevity:

"Death Gets in the Way of Old-Age Gains"

"An Age-Old Debate"

Hope to see you in Chicago!

Kind regards,

-- Leonid
