An assessment of what works best for our ageing community will be the focus of the 2018 SA Gerontology Conference being held at Flinders at Tonsley on Friday 13 July 2018.
Presented by the Australian Association of Gerontology SA Division, the conference will address a wide range of issues facing our ageing population and connect all stakeholders in this important issue – service providers, health professionals, policy makers, advocates, researchers, students and elderly people.
Keynote speakers will include Associate Professor Lee-Fay Low, Head of Behavioural and Social Sciences in Health at the University of Sydney; Dr Catherine Barrett, Director of Celebrate Ageing; 2017 SA Tall Poppy Winner Dr Ashleigh Smith from UniSA, and Mr Darren Mathewson, Strategy and Policy Executive Director (NSW/VIC/TAS) from Aged & Community Services Australia.
Mrs Nicky Baker, from the Flinders University Clinical Teaching and Education Centre, will be presenting on behalf of Professor Sue Gordon and the Flinders Inspiring Health team, discussing whether health screening and self-management can optimise ageing outcomes.
