QoLT Represented at Silvers Summit at the 2009 Consumer Electronics Show

Curt Stone Serves on Panel Discussion

Currently there are about 78 million boomers in the US (450 million worldwide) - born between 1946 and 1964 - hitting their peak earning and spending. One of the main catalysts is technology. Whether they're playing brain games for fun, monitoring their homes, visiting the grandkids via video conferencing, or navigating the back roads in their GPS-enabled SUVs; this generation is maximizing the benefits of the digital age. The Silvers Summit, a full day program to be presented on Saturday, January 10, at the 2009 International Consumer Electronics Show (CES), will showcase the products and services that keep boomers engaged, entertained, connected and healthy.

Curt Stone, QoLT Foundry Director and Industrial Liaison Officer, served on the panel "Simplifying the Silver Life" with other industry experts to discuss functionality of technology for the aging.
