On Tuesday 21 November, Ageing Well held its annual Symposium in Dunedin. Our entire team –members of the Governance Group, Strategic Advisory Group (formerly known as the SLT), Principal Investigators, and the Directorate – gathered together to receive project updates and plan for the future. Our 14 Principal Investigators (or their surrogates) presented brief updates on their projects outlining their progress to date, the challenges and opportunities they had encountered, and their achievements. It was exciting to hear about successful patient outcomes, stakeholder engagement, or journal publications that demonstrate the strength of our Challenge. The symposium also offered the chance to engage in a productive discussion about the future direction of Ageing Well, particularly as we build our case for Tranche 2 funding.
