The 8th World Congress on Active Ageing (WCAA) will be at the SECC in Glasgow from 13 – 17 August 2012. Held every four years, this week-long event is a highlight on the academic calendar, as researchers from across the world gather to discuss all things active ageing.
At the cost of £8, the Senior Pass will provide a full day’s access to what’s on offer at the WCAA. The days’ line ups are thematic, so it’s best to pick the day that interests you the most:
- Tuesday 14th August – Well-being, quality of life, cognitive function and dementia
- Wednesday 15th August – Falls and fractures, balance and bone health
- Thursday 16th August – Neurological and musculoskeletal conditions
- Friday 17th August – Cardiovascular and respiratory conditions
Watch this short video of Bob Laventure, organiser of WCAA 2012, talking about some of the activities that will be available through the week:
