Topic 1: What avenues/agencies are there in government that could fund longevity medicine research and development and how can we, as advocates, influence those levers to create action?

Topic 2: How can we (and the growing longevity community) make those who wield the most power in Washington aware of social and economic arguments behind pursuing the development of longevity medicine? What is the best way for us to convince these political power players to support policy that helps the creation of longevity medicine? Who should we focus on, what do they respond to and why?

Topic 3: How can we ensure that longevity, as a political issue, is accepted and supported by as many people as possible? What messages should we, as A4LI, focus on developing to help reach all communities? What messages regarding longevity would the panelists like their respective communities to know?
