Lecture: Social Connection and Happiness

What keeps people happy and healthy as they go through life?  In an era when wealth, fame and high achievement are often glorified as the keys to success, the Harvard Study of Adult Development examines what actually helps people thrive by studying thousands of lives unfolding across nearly a century. This lecture reports on the longest study of adult life ever done and presents scientific findings about human wellbeing throughout the lifespan.

Robert Waldinger, MD, professor of psychiatry, Harvard Medical School and Massachusetts General Hospital, will present.
