We are at the beginning of a longevity revolution that will change everything we know about life after 70. And 80. And 90. And 100.

Centenarians are now the second fastest growing segment of our population and the only group that’s growing more rapidly is supercentenarians -- those at least 110 years old.

To many of us, the idea of living to 100 isn’t all that appealing. But what if everything you thought you knew about living to 100 was wrong? What if it was possible to not only still be vibrant at 100, but also disease and medication free?

A growing number of scientists and researchers now predict that living to a healthier 100 will soon be commonplace. What if they're right? What if tomorrow’s 100-year-olds are not a drain on their families and society as a whole? What if they require far less healthcare than the average 40 year old today? What if they are working, dancing, swimming, driving, volunteering, living alone, and enjoying good meals and great vacations? Suddenly longevity is a great thing.

So how do we get there? We're going to be chatting with a man who is sharing what he's learned from the rock stars of longevity.

Des Cummings Jr., Ph.D., is the president of the Florida Hospital Foundation and executive vice president for Florida Hospital, the largest admitting hospital in the nation. Des is the author of or co-author of four books, including his latest, "8 Secrets of a Healthy 100: What You Can Learn From the All-Stars of Longevity." With its new Healthy 100 program, Florida Hospital is on a mission to help everyone learn the tools they need to evaluate their health and make goals to live to a healthy 100 years old. Together, we're going to uncover the secrets of Living to a Healthy 100.
