Attend The Age-Friendly Academy: impacting lifelong health and well-being event

This event will provide the opportunity to:

  • Catch up on developments since the Age-Friendly Academy launch and learn about their unique approach to lifelong learning.
  • Hear about some of the fascinating age-related research happening at Strathclyde.
  • Share your view as to how the University can further embed its age-friendly ethos and work collaboratively to achieve this.
  • Network over lunch with like-minded organisations and individuals.

In addition, Professor Sir Harry Burns will be the keynote speaker. Sir Harry is the Director of Global Public Health at Strathclyde’s International Public Policy Institute and was until 2014, Chief Medical Officer for Scotland. His talk will focus on the concept of “wellness” as being not simply the absence of illness and how we can all adopt this philosophy. You will also have the chance to pose your own questions to Sir Harry and those involved with the Age-Friendly Academy’s ongoing development.

The event will run from 10.20 am – 2.00 pm with tea and coffee on arrival and a buffet lunch.
