Keynotes:

Morning Keynote: Aging Successfully

John E. Morley, MB, BCh, Dammert Professor of Gerontology; Director, Division of Geriatric Medicine and Director, Division of Endocrinology, Saint Louis University Medical Center

Fauja Singh, from east London, recently ran a marathon – at 101 years of age! Ernestine Shepherd was listed in the Guinness Book of World Records as the oldest female bodybuilder at the age of 74. While these seniors may be an exception, they have aged successfully. This talk will cover the factors essential in aging successfully with a  focus on nutrition and exercise. Dr. Morley, coauthor of the book, The Science of Staying Young, will highlight new data on resistance exercise including leucine-inhibited essential amino acids.

Afternoon Keynote: Sarcopenia

John E. Morley, MB, BCh, Dammert Professor of Gerontology; Director, Division of Geriatric Medicine and Director, Division of Endocrinology, Saint Louis University Medical Center

Sarcopenia (age related loss of muscle mass) is a major contributor to falls, fractures, balance problems, frailty, and ultimately disability in older adults.  There is controversy over its definition with experts wanting to include not only loss of lean mass, but also measures of strength and power. SARC-F is a simple scale to clinically diagnose sarcopenia.  New developments in the diagnosis and management of sarcopenia will be discussed.
