Many people of the Medicare supplement age will find the research done by JAMA (Journal of American Medical Association) interesting.  The study compiled data for walking speed and longevity for nearly 35,000 older adults and shows a correlation between the two.  Doctors have for a long time measured heart rate, blood pressure, and respiratory rate to get a quick indication of a person's general health, but this research shows that maybe a stopwatch and a short walk might also make a great tool for assessing those in retirement. Longevity can vary widely in older adults. Watch the video below to see a way that can help predict it.
