Paul H. Irving is chairman of the Milken Institute Center for the Future of Aging and distinguished scholar in residence at the University of Southern California Davis School of Gerontology. Irving, who previously served as the Institute’s president, is a nationally recognized thought leader in the field and has led the Institute’s work promoting healthy, productive and purposeful aging.
