The Future is Silver - are we ready? 

It is time to rethink ageing. We are ageing very differently from our parents and grandparents. People are working longer, staying healthier and are more educated, tech-savvy and affluent than ever before. Our futures are built on the advances we have made in medicine and technology to personalise our healthcare and extend our health span. How do we best unlock the potential of our older selves to live longer, healthier contributing lives?  In this presentation, Rachel will question the status quo, rouse us to think differently and help us imagine a better silver future for us all. 

Speaker : Rachel Slattery
