Realistic Ageing

RCPE and EISF Talk Edinburgh

Date: Friday, 6 April 2018


The Great Hall
Royal College of Physicians of Edinburgh
9 Queen Street
EH2 1 JQ


How can Beyonce, ABBA, the Spice Girls and the old man from ‘Up’ help us understand ageing better?  Will you age gracefully? Chronological age only tells us a number and is probably the least useful measure of aging that we have. By using topics from popular media, Dr Martin Wilson, Fellow of the Royal College of Physicians of Edinburgh, will highlight some of the major themes that determine how successfully, or otherwise, adults age. Learn about the realities of ageing and how to plan ahead in order to enjoy life to the full for as long as possible.
