The HealthyLongevity.guide is proud to announce another successful webinar. This is our first webinar highlighting a topic deeply rooted in almost all people's everyday lives. In this webinar, our speaker Jihane Farrell, a health coach, and scientist, covered some interesting points about the importance of social connectedness and its influence on longevity. The webinar was hosted by HealthyLongevity.guide content creators Olena Mokshyna, Ph.D., and Ehab Naim, MBA. 

At the beginning of the webinar, Jihane stressed the importance of social connectedness in predicting longevity, where it was found to be the foremost contributor to a longer life. She backed the information with results from a Harvard study that mentioned that the quality and number of personal relationships predicted how long and happy participants lived. She further highlighted that social connections reduce the risk of premature mortality by about one-half and provided other statistical results from the literature. Jihane indicated that social isolation contributes to higher mortality rates due to increased risk of heart conditions, blood pressure, anxiety, and cognitive decline, among other reasons.

Dr. Farrell mentioned the importance of social connectedness across different life stages, from early childhood to late life. She then discussed a downward trend in social relationships and revealed that the number of Americans who reported having no close confidants has increased threefold in just two decades.    

Afterward, Dr. Farrell started explaining approaches that health coaches could adopt to encourage their clients to have meaningful relationships that benefit their longevity. She revealed that the first step is to assess the quality of clients' support networks using a 5-parameter technique. She then moved to actionable steps that health coaches could utilize to help their clients build quality relationships and overcome obstacles that they might face. Jihane presented strategies that health coaches could relay to their clients to improve social connectedness, like volunteering, fitting into groups like a yoga class, and utilizing social media. She also explained how health coaches could enhance the quality of their client's relationships. When she finished presenting, Jihane addressed questions raised by the audience.

Stay tuned for our next webinar with Eleanor Sheeky on June 2, 9 AM PT. The upcoming webinar will discuss cellular senescence and its role in cancer and aging.
