    Additional Comments:  Recent breakthrough discoveries in the science of aging are transforming the way we think about growing older and stimulating cross-disciplinary research to optimize the aging process. In this lecture, Professor Ferraro reviews recent discoveries regarding the early origins of adult health and his research to identify resources that mitigate the influence of early misfortune on later life health, especially among Black and Hispanic populations.
