-The 30-minute concluding episode airs during March 2-8
HONG KONG, March 4, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — Following the eight-month long series hosted by multiple Emmy-award winning chief medical correspondent Dr. Sanjay Gupta, CNN is airing a 30-minute concluding episode of ‘Live Longer’ this month, which continues to highlight aspects of our lives that impacts longevity, ranging from factors we can control – like diet, exercise, and smoking to the factors we can’t – such as the environment and our own genetics.
CNN’s ‘Live Longer’ explores the latest science, technology and research for a healthier and longer lifespan
Launched in July 2018, CNN’s ‘Live Longer’ explored how the latest science, technology and research can increase life expectancy. Throughout these eight months, CNN traveled to different countries including Ireland, Hong Kong, and Sweden to explore how certain lifestyle changes can positively impact lifespan, and lead to a longer and better life.
In the special 30-minute final episode, CNN travels from the crystal blue waters of the Caribbean, to the harbor of vibrant Hong Kong, with 49-year-old Chris Hay, CEO of a global company. On airplanes as much as he is at home, the busy lifestyle of this world-traveling executive presents a challenge many people can relate to. In his conversation with Dr. Sanjay Gupta, Chris shared his reflection after the tragic wake-up call about his health – a sudden heart attack few years ago caused by 80-percent blockage in his left artery – and conveyed his message to help us all live Longer.
CNN also talks to Dr. Christopher Murray from University of Washington, who specializes in the data behind our health and longevity, to gain insight into lifespan trends over the next two decades, as we try to improve not just the length of our lives, but the quality of those years.
‘Live Longer’ is produced by CNN Vision, the global creative production powerhouse of CNN International, which brings the world’s breath-taking diversity into cinematic focus, telling stories that inspire audiences around the world.
