Life Expectancy and Longevity: The Impact of Genomics

Genomic science is advancing at light speed and scientists believe the first person to live to age 150 has already been born.  What does the mortality curve look like for the next 50 years?  How can the insurance industry prepare for the future and also play a role?  This is a time to understand the radical changes that are coming and to begin formulating comprehensive strategies to maximize opportunity and minimize risk.
