Everyone who lives and breathes ages during their lifetime. No matter where you come from, what you do, or how you live your life, aging is something that everyone has in common and is unavoidable. Our skin starts to wrinkle, our bones get weaker, and even the normal everyday things we do can become quite a bit harder. There are diseases associated with aging including cancer, high blood pressure, osteoporosis, and arthritis. The health care system is focused on helping patients deal with the symptoms of their problems and not the root of it, which should be the solution. Instead of working on preventing these aging problems and diseases, they are treating the conditions in the aftermath.
Jason Hope is passionate about changing how we look at aging and how we can live longer and better lives. He is an entrepreneur from Arizona but also a philanthropist who works tirelessly to find ways to make the aging process a lot easier for people around the globe. There is an organization that Jason Hope particularly is rooting for and it’s called the SENS Foundation. They use biotechnology to improve and prevent disease for people. Jason Hope is so passionate about their cause that in 2010 he announced at the San Francisco’s Palace of Fine Arts that he donated $500,000 to the SENS Foundation to further research. Not only is SENS’s mission focused on research to prevent aging, but they are educating people on how they perceive aging so real change can commence. They even uses volunteers, politicians, donors, and influencers to spread awareness. Their research has taken place at such educational institutions as The University of Arizona (where Jason Hope received his education), Yale University, Cambridge University, and Harvard University. Aubrey de Grey is the chief science officer and leader of SENS Foundation, which is also a non-profit organization.
Jason Hope has praised this organization for working on a number of subjects, not just zooming in on one particular facet or disease. This all encompassing approach can change the face of the medical industry according to Mr. Hope. He attended Arizona State University where he received a Bachelor of Science in Finance and continued on at the same university, but their W.P. Carey School of Business to earn his Master of Business Administration degree. Since then Jason has worked hard as an entrepreneur and philanthropist trying to make a different in the world for the better.
