Live Longer Better Thought Leadership National Event

Wednesday 23rd March 2022, 10.00 – 11.30

Live Longer Better Thought Leadership National Event

The number of older people is increasing, both in absolute terms and relative to the numbers of young people. This is usually portrayed as a major problem but our understanding of the science of what is happening to us as we live longer is getting clearer, and the evidence about what can be done to prevent or delay, or slow or even reverse the conditions we fear most - frailty, dementia and dependence is getting stronger. The burden on health and social care can be significantly reduced by increasing activity – physical, cognitive and emotional. But we need a revolution, a cultural revolution in how we think about living longer and therefore in what we do.

Join us at our next national event to understand what we need to do to reduce this burden!

We need to:

  • Refocus the lens on population ageing to healthy longevity
  • Focus on reconditioning rather than deconditioning
  • Prescribe activity with, and sometimes instead of, drug prescriptions
  • Recognise that physical activity professionals are agents of change as catalysts for action within complex systems.

Expert Speakers confirmed to date include:

v Sir Muir Gray

v Jamie Blackshaw (Office for Health Improvement and Disparities)

v Anant Jani (University of Oxford)

v Dr Jenni Jones (National University of Ireland)

v Dr Marlize de Vivo (Active Medicine)

v Lisa Wood (Active Partnership – Wesport)

We look forward to sharing some excellent presentations from speakers around the Live Longer Better work, inspired by Sir Muir Gray in collaboration with Active Partnerships.
