Medicine’s Howard Tucker shares thoughts on the key to living a long life

CNNHoward Tucker, adjunct professor at the School of Medicine, shared what he believes to be the key to living a long life—from his own experience at 101 years old: perseverance and fostering a love of learning. “While technology has made a tremendous impact on the practice of medicine, I still urge my medical students to listen to patients, take an adequate history and look at the patient while questioning him/her,” he said. “Then, I would have them look at the imaging studies.”
