Agewell 2017

Agewell is our chance to say a big thank-you to all the members of the Birmingham 1000 Elders group for all the support given to all our research projects over the last year. It is also our way of feeding back to you our research results and to offer you the chance to take part in interactive sessions focusing on healthy ageing.

This year we have an exciting new venue and a different format which we hope you will enjoy. As most of you will know, traditionally Agewell is held in the first couple of weeks in September.

This year we hope Agewell will take place on the 11th of September and it will be held at Birmingham Council House – we are waiting for the contract between the University of Birmingham and Birmingham City Council to be exchanged and then we can open up the booking process, but please do put the date in your diary.


As with previous years, we hope to have a series of informative talks, however this year as a slight break from tradition these will mostly be delivered by our soon to graduate PhD students, many of who you may know and recognise as you might have been involved in their laboratory testing and data collection exercises. This is your chance to find out how your time and effort contributed not only to our student’s education but directly to our their (and our) scientific understanding.

Please, could you all keep your fingers crossed that we are able to secure the venue on the 11th of September and watch this space for further details on how to sign up!

Many thanks,
