Telomere Length As One The Most Critical Elements In Cellular Health: 7 Years Of A Clinician’s Experience

Marcela V. Young, MD


  • Lifespan versus Healthspan.
  • Proactive versus reactive medicine.
  • Precision medicine/genetics.
Joseph M. Raffaele, M.D.

Dr. Marcella V. Young is a graduate of the University of Miami in obstetrics and gynecology, the University of West Virginia in internal medicine and the Cenegenics Education and Research Foundation in age management medicine. She has more than 30 years of professional experience in the United States, the country where she chose to continue her postgraduate education after graduating from the University of Buenos Aires with the degree of Doctor in Medicine. 

Dr. Young has more than countless accreditations granted by the American Medical Association for her continuous medical education to remain at the leading edge of this area of medicine so innovative and revolutionary. With this multidisciplinary training, Dr. Young is able to bring to her patients a vast amount of knowledge and experience to help them optimize their health. By entering into her treatment protocols, her patients enjoy healthy aging, free of diseases and therefore significantly improved quality of life independently of their chronological age. 

In the last two years, Dr. Young has been nominated as a member of the Society of International Business Fellows based on her continuous efforts to spread her knowledge internationally outside the United States to Europe and recently South America in Uruguay and Argentina. Well, it’s great to have you on the Telomere Summit, Marcela, you know, you and I have been friends and colleagues for quite a long time now. Meeting at the various meetings we go to and talking about the changes in the field of longevity medicine in general, but also Telomere biology. And I’m really excited to have you on the show to talk about, you know, share some of the conversations we’ve had, some of the talks we’ve had about patients and your views on the kind of medicine you practice and why it’s really the best way to take care of your patients and extend their health span. So I’d like you to just get started, maybe by telling us, the audience, a little bit about how you made the transition from obstetrics and gynecology training and then internal medicine training. And in the past 30 years of practicing medicine into this new and exciting field of longevity medicine.
