Due to the growing concern regarding COVID-19 and in consideration of the health of our extended UCLA family, this event has been temporarily postponed. For more information, please contact

Join us at the 2nd Act for a moderated conversation to learn tools to age successfully with UCLA Psychology professor Alan Castel. An expert in cognitive psychology, Dr. Castel studies learning, memory and age, with a particular interest in how younger and older adults selectively remember important information. He has been featured in the New York Times, Time Magazine, TedX, and UCLA Centennial Alumni Day. His book, “Better with Age: The Psychology of Successful Aging”, was released in 2018.

Castel offers important and practicable tips to age well by avoiding aspects of aging that negatively impact quality of life. He will also share secrets from super-agers about staying sharp and aging preventatively more than just gracefully. Learn from UCLA’s resident expert what studies indicate about memory, how to grow older well and how to delay dementia. Use the Q&A portion of our program to get your questions answered and optimize your own successful 2nd Act.
