Targeting Healthy Longevity 2023

Fireside Chat with FDA Commissioner
May 3, 2023

The Conference

Inaugural Fireside Chat: FDA Commissioner on Healthy Longevity
May 3, 2023
2:00-3:30PM EDT

Targeting Healthy Longevity gathers stellar speakers from multiple disciplines, including science and medicine, behavioral science, government regulation, policy, reimbursement, industry and capital markets, patient advocacy, boomer and senior lifestyle, digital health and age-technology, and many others. Expanding evidence supports that the major chronic diseases—cardiovascular and neurodegenerative diseases, diabetes, obesity, cancer, and the aging process itself—have common metabolic roots and thus may be susceptible to shared solutions.

What is Targeting Healthy Longevity?

The Kitalys Institute is organizing Targeting Healthy Longevity (previously Targeting Metabesity) for 2023 different from previous years, where the conference was a once a year event taking place over several days in October.  For 2023, Targeting Healthy Longevity will consist of a series of free monthly conference session webinars, culminating in an in-person event near the end of the year.  


The inaugural session will be a fireside chat with FDA Commissioner Rob Califf, addressing for the first time, to our knowledge, the regulation of healthspan products, followed by a roundtable discussion among healthy longevity leaders on regulatory challenges and opportunities, on Wednesday, May 3, 2023, from 2 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. EDT.  Registration for this inaugural session can be found HERE.  


Additional free conference session webinars will be announced in the coming months, on topics from RCTs for supplements, to healthspan legislation and regulations to facilitate and incentivize the development of healthspan products, to emerging business models for Big Pharma/Big Food/Big Tech and their corresponding emerging companies, to metabolic approaches to neurodegenerative diseases, as well as information about the in-person event spotlighting progress in aging biomarkers and endpoints.      

Our audience cuts across sectors and disciplines for a multi-pronged approach to one of the most important health issues affecting people in all walks of life.
