Research into aging was revolutionized by the MacArthur Study, which under the leadership of Drs. John W. Rowe and Robert L. Kahn, created a network of leading research scientists from key fields to determine what aging actually involves Successful Aging. They explode the myths about aging that have long shaped individual and institutional attitudes toward growing older, including the biggest myth of all: “The key to aging well is choosing your parents wisely.” In fact, lifestyle choices–more than genes–determine how well we age.

These choices can make a difference no matter how late in life they are made.
