“How to age well” free seminar comes to Kerry
Did you know that people living by the sea are less likely to be depressed? That optimists live longer? That friendship and a good social life is as important as low cholesterol for heart disease? That quality of life continues to get better after 50 for almost another 30 years? Did you know that imprints of cellular ageing begin in early childhood?
These nuggets of knowledge, and further research insights from The Irish Longitudinal Study on Ageing (TILDA) at Trinity College Dublin and other international studies, will be delivered by Professor Rose Anne Kenny, a world-renowned authority in healthy ageing and Principal Investigator of TILDA, as part of a series of public seminars, entitled, ‘How to Age Well: Evidence from TILDA’.
In an era where we are expected to live longer, TILDA, the GAA and Irish Life have joined forces to highlight the secrets to successful ageing through this series of regional seminars. The joint initiate, launched in Croke Park, has gone from strength to strength, delivering seven hugely successful events around the country in 2019, with a further eight events planned for 2020.
GAA Ambassadors from participating counties will be at each event to support and to speak about their own experiences of inter-county success and insights to health and well-being. The Ambassadors visited TILDA’s research hub in Trinity College to experience some of the tests that the research participants undergo, including cognitive tests, gait analysis, grip strength, bone density and aural and visual testing.
We hope to see you there, all ages welcome!
This Free community event will be delivered by leading Irish expert on ageing
Professor Rose Anne Kenny at The Rose Hotel, Tralee from 7:00pm – 9:00pm on Monday 10th February.
The Kerry ambassador for the event is the legendary Eoin “Bomber” Liston who will also speak on the night.
