Growing old gracefully

With an ageing global population, the question of how to live long and well has never been more pertinent. In Borrowed Time, science writer Sue Armstrong harnesses the latest research to ask how and why we age. In Breakfast with the Centenarians, gerontology expert Daniela Mari turns to supercentenarians to learn the art of growing old. Together, they unpack the secrets to a long life, in converstaion with Sheena McDonald.

Daniela Mari is professor of Geriatrics at the University of Milan and Director of the Geriatric Unit, IRCCS Ca' Granda Maggiore Hospital Foundation. She was until recently the doctor for Emma Morano, the world's oldest living woman at 117 until she passed away in April 2017.
