Ted Talks at Passmore - The Secret to Living Longer May be Your Social Life - Susan Pinker

Tuesday, February 18, 2020

What are TED Talks? TED stands for Technology, Entertainment and Design. TED is owned by a non-profit, non-partisan foundation. Its agenda is to make great ideas accessible and spark conversations. Topics are created and made available for use by TED. Join us as we dive into TED Talks at Passmore in a laidback yet informative environment including a 15 - 30 min video/talk and follow up discussions. The Italian island of Sardinia has more than six times as many centenarians as the mainland and ten times as many as in North America. Why? According to psychologist Susan Pinker, it's not a sunny disposition or a low-fat, gluten-free diet that keeps the islanders healthy -- it's their emphasis on close personal relationships and face-to-face interactions. Learn more about super longevity as Pinker explains what it takes to live to 100 and beyond. Min: 5/Max: 25. Facilitator: Meghan Davis
