“For the first time in history, older adults outnumber the young. Quality of life doesn’t have an expiration date, and people of all ages deserve comfort, agency, security, connection and care,” says Jisella Dolan, Chief Advocacy Officer for Home Instead. “Aging is the universal human experience. We are excited to spotlight this unifying issue with the SXSW audience, including the opportunity it creates for innovation, diversity, transformation, and workforce empowerment.”
“United Way is thrilled to be back in person at SXSW. The past two pandemic years have taught us all so much about what is truly important to impact the health, education and financial well-being of all those that we serve,” said Edwin Goutier, Vice President, Innovation, United Way Worldwide. “The problems of today require innovation, determination and creative partnerships like the one we are proud to have with Energizing Health. We are looking forward to participating in open discussions, tackling difficult topics and coming up with some real, actionable solutions this year in Austin.”
For a look into the future, the Translational Research Institute for Space Health will be presenting a session on the continuing discoveries and innovations stemming from health research in space that not only benefit space travelers, but also all of humanity on earth. They will also discuss Space Health: Surviving in the Final Frontier a new documentary produced by the TRISH to showcase these emerging opportunities and the future of health driven by spaceflight.
