Some of the UK’s leading experts on ageing are coming together for a one day conference to explore the impact old age will have on all of us.
This top showcase is taking place at Aston University on Wednesday 21st September 2011.
The event is open to the public and will provide a forum for world-class researchers to show their work to a wider audience and to explore ways in which their expertise can shape the future of healthy ageing. With more and more people expected to live longer, there is an urgent need to focus on the areas that affect older adults and identify solutions to the many challenges old age brings.
Dr Roslyn Bill continues: ‘At ARCHA, we’ve always said that we want our research to have real impact on the lives of older adults. We are keen for the public to come along to see what we are doing, and also so we can find out what matters to them. If we don’t know what affects their lives we can’t help them as well. We are looking for volunteers, and there will be opportunities to take part in our many research studies.’
Aston University is an award winning research led institution in the heart of Birmingham. It has Four Schools of Study which all contribute to ARCHA. In the 2012 Sunday Times University Guide, Aston was named No 1 in the UK for ‘Subjects Allied to Medicine’ and also for ‘Pharmacy’.
The day starts at 10am and runs through to an afternoon session beginning at 3pm.
