Ageing Well Public Talk

Posted on 29.10.2019 - 10:38 by Jitka Vseteckova

For the past 14 years I have been teaching clinicians, allied health professionals and the public, abroad as well as in the UK, on how to do so. I have been presenting my ‘Ageing Well’ Lecture Series in collaboration with Third Age University and Free Time University overseas and more recently in collaboration with primary care practices in the UK.

These lectures are also a component of an international online education platform for clinicians and allied health professionals via the UKeMED & Cambridge Medical Academy, based in Addenbrookes Hospital. I am regularly invited to give public lectures regionally, nationally and internationally and I am member of several committees at University and regional level such as the East of England Academic Health Science Network and the UKeMED & Cambridge Medical Academy network to which I act as advisor on ageing.

I am delighted to announce this series of public talks with the title ‘Ageing Well’, are being offered at The Open University in Milton Keynes in the University Library from 11h30 am -1pm.
