The Longevity Connection: Prudential’s Perspective on the Stanford Sightlines Project

Over the last century, the life span of the average American has increased by nearly 30 years.1 This remarkable progress presents both opportunities and challenges, as individuals seek to be happy, healthy, and financially secure over the course of a longer lifetime.

The Stanford Center on Longevity initiated The Sightlines Project, in which research was conducted on three domains – financial security, healthy living, and social engagement – that are key to a successful long life. In The Longevity Connection: Prudential’s Perspective on the Stanford Sightlines Project, Prudential provides perspectives on the interdependencies of these three domains, and how an improvement in even one domain can help Americans live longer, healthier lives.

The Sightlines Project was sponsored in part by Prudential.
