The Living to 100 Life Expectancy Calculator is available for licensing and can be tailor-made for your needs as in the settings of human resources departments, health care organizations and other entitites that would like to provide its employees and/or clients with information and links specific to your organization and in some cases interventions (e.g. nurse coaching). Answers to the calculator questions can be provided to the organization as a helpful gauge of its employees' and/or clients' health-related behaviors, thus allowing for better and more appropriate provision of services to these individuals.
