Living Forever, Vicariously: Bridging Generation Gaps

Marc Freedman is not into plastic surgery, nutritional supplements, or the Singularity. He's about bridging the generational divide in ways that benefit old and young alike. 

Freedman has been working on issues of our aging population for most of his professional life. With such a large percentage of the population now over the age of 50, Freedman sees a vital need to unite the generations.

It's what young people want and need, he says, and it's vital both to the quality of life for older people and for the general health of our society.  He wrote a book, How to Live Forever: The Enduring Power of Connecting the Generations.  
Marc Freedman visits The Exchange to talk about his work.
