    The University of Michigan National Poll on Healthy Aging (NPHA) is a recurring, na- tionally representative household survey launched in 2017, in partnership with AARP. The NPHA taps directly into the insights, experiences, and perspectives of older adults related to their health, health care, and health-related decision-making to better inform the public, providers, and policymakers on timely issues related to policy and practice. As life expectancy increases, and healthy aging is a goal we all share, please join us as Drs. John Ayanian, Erica Solway and Jeff Kullgren highlight key findings from recent NPHA reports on important healthy aging topics, including prescription drugs, dental care, opi- oids, health insurance, and loneliness.
