The Humansa International Advisory Board:
A Unique Global Longevity Resource

The Humansa International Advisory Board (HIAB) has been formed to bring together the brightest minds in the fields of longevity and business, with the goal of reimagining health and wellness for our customers. With the approaching year of 2030, there is an increasingly strong interest in the key elements that are essential for living a better and longer life. Society is undergoing a transformative shift in its perception of medicine, with a renewed emphasis on healthspan, which encompasses our physical and cognitive well-being, as well as lifespan, which refers to how long we live. The HIAB members will share their insightful perspectives and thinking for longevity ,the future health and wellbeing of society and to further develop the future of Humansa’s truly consumer-centric health platform in Asia.

  • How well we live is now being charted by preventive healthcare and lifestyle choices which in turn can prolong healthspan instead of just lifespan.
  • Increasingly five core themes are recognised as pivotal to healthspan: nutrition, exercise, sleep, emotional health and exogenous molecules (medications, supplements and hormones).
  • With the formation of our HIAB, Humansa hopes to bring global health, products and services, thinking and advancement to every aspect of human longevity across the Greater Bay Area and internationally.
  • Humansa’s purpose is for consumers to be able to take complete control of their health and wellness and unlock their true potential to lead meaningful, productive and fulfilling lives.
  • Our Board is composed of the world’s leading experts in Longevity, Preventive Medicine, Precision Health, Wellness, Health and Business. Today we are introducing the Founding IAB members and we expect to be announcing new Board members over 2024.
