Later life: The art and the science, London – 26 October 2015

A symposium on positive approaches to ageing.

Challenging the frequently negative media focus on the old-age ‘burden’, this symposium will focus on the contributions that older people themselves make to society and the relationship between positivity and health.

The meeting aims to give delegates a greater understanding of

  • the importance of the environment, culture and exercise in healthy ageing.
  • how people can be motivated to make lifestyle changes
  • how older people can be actively involved in the design  of a healthy environment
  • the importance of mood and positive self image in maintaining health in old age

Venue: Royal Society of Medicine, Wimpole St., London.
