LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - NBC Chief Medical Editor Dr. Nancy Snyderman appeared on WAVE 3 News Sunrise Wednesday to talk about aging and the way our society should prepare for getting older.

Snyderman was in Louisville to present the keynote address at the National Association of Area Agencies on Aging's 38th annual conference.

Snyderman said 65% of seniors have at least two chronic health problems but don't have an action plan. She also weighed in on the controversy surrounding so-called energy drinks. A U.S. Senate committee was scheduled to hold hearings in Washington Wednesday to discuss potential health risks the drinks pose to children.
