    A Closer Look at….Aging

    Can we leverage stem cells to help live longer, healthier lives? Robert A.J. Signer, Ph.D., and Shiri Gur-Cohen, Ph.D., examine the process of aging at the molecular and cellular level to show how stem cells may be the key to preventing age-related health problems.

    How to Maximize Bone Health

    How to Maximize Bone Health

    As we age, our bones become thinner and weaken. For older people this can lead to life-altering fractures. Our bones are growing, living tissue made up of calcium-based minerals, collagen and other proteins. Understanding your bone health - how well the minerals and proteins are working together to resist fracture - can help you and your doctor determine the best course of treatment. Paul Hansma, Ph.D., inventor and professor emeritus of physics at UC Santa Barbara, has been studying the protein 'glue' within our bones and how to measure it. In this program, Hansma discusses a new assessment called Bone Score, which, along with other diagnostic tests like measuring bone density, can give a more complete picture of overall bone health. The Bone Score assessment medical device was recently approved by the FDA. Hansma is a founder and investor in Active Life Scientific, a UC startup company that manufactures the equipment for Bone Score tests and runs the bonescore.com website. The views expressed in this video are his own and do not necessarily reflect the views of Active Life Scientific or the University of California. [Health and Medicine] [Show ID: 38054]

    Can 70 Really Be The New 50? Living Longer and Healthier with Exercise

    Can 70 Really Be The New 50? Living Longer and Healthier with Exercise

    We may be living longer, but are we living healthier? As we age, proper nutrition and exercise can help us live more fulfilling lives and enjoy our extended post-retirement years. Indeed, exercise is medicine. Cindy Chang, MD, a sports medicine physician, shares her training and expertise to provide physical activity goals and guidelines for adults. She'll also help you determine your own activity level using the "physical activity vital sign" and why this is even more important during the COVID pandemic.

    How Older Black Adults Experience Stress and Anxiety

    How Older Black Adults Experience Stress and Anxiety

    Most research studies don't consider how different races perceive the stressfulness of stress exposure. This has led to a paradox among mental and physical health outcomes that show whites report more instances of stress and depression, yet people of color have higher rates of stress-related illnesses such as hypertension. Indeed, racial/ethnic minorities have more disabilities, a greater number of chronic conditions, and age faster than other populations. Lauren Brown, PhD, discusses the unique stress experience of older black adults and explores how race-based discrimination, lower incomes, and poor education impact long term aging.
