Putting Research Into Action
A landmark ten-year study by the MacArthur Foundation revealed that 70% of physical aging and approximately 50% of mental aging is determined by the lifestyle choices that we make every day. What this means is that we are not resigned to accept a life of steady decline as we age. Instead, aging can be a time of growth if we maintain our physical and mental skills, reduce our risk for disease and injury, and stay productive and engaged with life.
Using a research-based lifestyle approach, Masterpiece Living provides measurable tools for individual lifestyle evaluation, feedback, and intervention coaching, organization cultural interventions, and outcome data on parameters crucial to aging successfully.
Data Revelations are the result of studying and analyzing all of the successful aging data collected from the Masterpiece Living network by way of measurement tools called the Masterpiece Reviews. Having these scientifically validated tools and one of the largest successful aging databases, Masterpiece Living and its partners are compelled to contribute to the existing body of knowledge in the aging and health promotion field with the ultimate goal of changing the mainstream perceptions of aging and influencing public policy.
For more than fourteen years, Masterpiece Living has brought this research to life and has worked directly with industry leaders and experts, including Dr. Robert Kahn, co-author of Successful Aging. Today, as a result of continuous development and evolution, MPL has partnered with more than seventy organizations and are committed to creating a better aging experience for all. Dr. Roger’s book, Live Long, Die Short, gives us a deeper understanding of what it takes to be authentically healthy, of the profound negative effects of modern day stress, and our need to nurture all aspects of our magnificent human nature.
