Fly-In 2024


The biological aging process is the primary risk factor for the top causes of non-accidental death in the United States, including heart disease, cancers, COVID-19, stroke, respiratory illnesses and Alzheimer’s. In total, chronic, age-driven health conditions that require ongoing medical care and treatment incur $3.7 trillion in annual healthcare spending. As people live longer, a growing proportion of our population suffer from more than one age-related condition at a time, further exacerbating the healthcare system.

Because aging is the driver of chronic diseases, therapies that directly target aging physiology could prevent or cure multiple chronic age-related diseases. Researchers in the biology of aging are beginning to understand how the biological processes of aging promote disease, and dozens of biotechnology companies are applying that understanding to delay the onset and progression of age-associated health problems. Such interventions, generally termed “longevity medicine,” have the potential to dramatically decrease both mortality and healthcare costs, likely to a greater extent than even the complete cure of any one disease, while alleviating suffering and improving quality of life — revolutionizing healthcare for all Americans.

Recognizing that there is a need for federal investment and commercialization in the longevity medicine space, the Alliance for Longevity Initiatives is hosting our inaugural D.C. Fly-In, which will include the first ever Longevity Science Briefing on March 21st, 2024. Join us for an invigorating two-day event including an intimate Q&A session with ARPA-H, the first-ever Longevity Science Briefing and an exclusive dinner with a keynote speech by Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich. The first ever A4LI D.C. Fly-In will set the foundation for awareness and growth for this crucial area of longevity biotechnology research and we hope to see you all there!
