The Eastern Economic Forum will host a ‘Managing the Body’s Resources to Achieve a Long and Happy Life’ business session, organized by the Roscongress Healthy Life project and sponsored by National Medical Research Centre for Rehabilitation and Balneology of the Ministry of Health of the Russian Federation.
Event participants will include National Medical Research Centre for Preventive Medicine of the Ministry of Health of the Russian Federation Director Oksana Drapkina; FSBI Institute of Immunology State Research Centre of the Federal Medical-Biological Agency of Russia Molecular Immunogenetics Laboratory Director Ilya Kofiadi; European Society of Preventive, Regenerative and Anti-Ageing Medicine (ESAAM) President and Federal Research and Clinical Centre of Intensive Care Medicine and Rehabilitology Chief Researcher Arseny Trukhanov; and Department Head of Biomedical Technologies, National Medical Research Centre for Rehabilitation and Balneology of the Ministry of Health of the Russian Federation Ilmira Gilmutdinova among others.
More and more people are subscribing to the philosophy of a long and active life of high-quality. Biological youth is directly related to strong physical and mental health, an ability to work, stress resistance, and external vitality. Anti-aging medical care seeks to integrate all of these facets: not by struggling against the signs of aging but by slowing down age-related changes to the body through prediction, control, and management of a person’s health and age, as well as by enhancing the body’s protective resources capable of resisting external infections and age-associated processes. Anti-age therapy is based on the contemporary model of personalized and preventive medicine. Thanks to advances in molecular biology, immunology, genetics, and other sciences, the quality of strategies for managing the aging process have reached an entirely new level.
“We are faced with the task of increasing Russians’ life expectancy. It is also important that we look to quality of life. Quality of life is determined by the general state of one’s health, one’s ability to lead an active lifestyle, and by minimizing the age restrictions to which one is subject. It is possible to achieve these goals if people treat their health in a responsible way, by developing preventive technologies, and with the help of high-quality regular check-ups”, National Medical Research Centre for Preventive Medicine of the Ministry of Health of the Russian Federation Director Oksana Drapkina said.
The expert discussion will see participants discuss the extent to which the Russian healthcare system meets global standards of medical care aimed at increasing life expectancy; what preventive measures to reduce the risks of age-related illness are provided for in law at the level of government and individual regions today; whether a significant increase in life expectancy could become a problem for the economy and healthcare and lead to new healthcare priorities, and what innovative research-based and practical developments in genetics, immunology, biology and other medical sciences could drive innovations in the prevention of age-related illnesses.
