Keiro is proud to present the Keiro Symposium “Aging into Tomorrow – An innovative approach to the aging process” on Saturday, October 5, 2019 at The Westin Long Beach. This one-day gathering for baby boomers, older adults, and industry leaders alike highlights wellness, technology, and aging trends that impact Our Community.
The symposium will feature two keynote sessions. Dr. Candice Hall, owner and CEO of Next Advanced Medicine, will speak about the latest research on cognitive decline and early-stage Alzheimer’s disease from a functional medicine approach. Tracey Doi and Douglas Moore from Toyota Motor North America will share some of their newest innovations and products that address mobility challenges for everyone.
This year, attendees will have the opportunity to select one out of three breakout tracks: Aging at Home, Social Connections, and Whole-Person Care. Each track will consist of a morning speaker, who will provide an overview of the track theme, and an afternoon panel highlighting related services and products. Panelists include Dr. Jessica Louie, a KonMari consultant, Brian Shulman, Business Development Director at Intuition Robotics, as well as Wendi Burkhardt, CEO of Silvernest, an app for older adults looking for roommates. We are also pleased to welcome Emmy Award-Winning Tech Reporter, Rich DeMuro of KTLA-TV as one of the panel moderators. More information on the symposium tracks and speakers is available on our website.
Registration check-in begins at 8:00 a.m. Following the keynote and track sessions, an innovation fair featuring the panelists will be hosted from 3:00 to 4:00 p.m.
