  • Living in the United States
  • At least one parent lived to be 95 or older

  • Annual visits to Einstein's campus

    Each visit will take approximately 2-3 hours (longer during the first visit), and will include the following

                -Blood test, EKG
                -Tests of memory and walking ability
