MLK Jr. once said "The quality, not the longevity, of one's life is what is important". For the past 3 years, I've been part of a bio-tech startup called Juvenescence (www.juvlabs.com) with the dual focus of extending lifespan and health span. It has been a great ride and has been especially rewarding during these trying times of COVID 19. We have seen a lot of our 3 daughters over the past 18 months having officially relocated to Kiawah Island, SC. Over Memorial Day 2021, we also downsized from our 20 year home in Princeton, NJ to a townhouse up in Morristown, NJ. Lots of change but still staying focused on family, friendship and health. Looking forward to reconnecting with Wharton colleagues in the near future!
