Ageing Well: Virtual Talk with the Open University
07/05/2020 @ 11:30 am - 1:00 pm
Join VHS and the Open University for the first in series of joint online events exploring ageing, health and wellbeing.
Led by Dr Jitka Všetečková who currently works at the Faculty of Wellbeing, Education and Language Studies, The Open University. Jitka undertakes research in Public Health with special interest in Ageing, Dementia, Exercise and Mental Health.
In this series we are exploring how important it is, over our lifespan, to maintain a well-balanced nutrition and hydration as well as regular physical and social activity in the older age, also known as the ‘Five Pillars of Ageing Well’. This particular talk will cover basic biomedical and psycho-social aspects of ageing, age-related conditions e.g. bone health and frailty and will ask what will the impact of Covid-19 be for ageing well?
