Staying UPright and Eating well Research (SUPER) is an Ageing Well National Science Challenge funded project, which aims to test the impact and cost-effectiveness of physical activity and/or nutrition, and social group attendance, to reduce frailty and falls of older people. This project is one of the biggest studies into ageing happening across New Zealand and is led by Dr Ruth Teh at Auckland University. Recently this project has been fetching media attention and has been streamed online at multiple sites, as follows:
