Event description

Description

The Irish Longitudinal Study on Ageing (TILDA) is Ireland’s largest adult study. TILDA, funded by the Department of Health, Irish Life and Atlantic Philanophies and led by Trinity College Dublin, is one of the most comprehensive population studies of ageing internationally (www.tilda.ie). TILDA commenced data collection in 2009, recruiting a nationally representative cohort of 8,500 people, aged 50 and over, in order to chart their health, social and economic circumstances over time. Wave 5 of data collection has just been completed.

TILDA is a member of a family of longitudinal studies in ageing lead by the Healthy Retirement Study in the US. Each year, the TILDA Scientific Advisory Board (SAB) meet to assist with novel applications and output from the study. This year, the SAB will for the first time, join with advisors from the larger global network of ageing studies to reflect on the fast evolving research in Ireland and other parts of the world. Also, for the first time, the meeting will be held outside of Dublin in the West of Ireland in Westport, Co Mayo. The conference will take place in the Town Hall of Westport. A scientific programme for Thursday and Friday morning has been created to allow attendees to be emersed in ageing research, network with world leaders in the field, and enjoy the culture of the West of Ireland.

Speakers at the conference will include Professor Rose Anne Kenny, Dr Anne Nolan, Dr Charlotte Neville, Professor Charles Normand, Professor Brian O’Connell, Professor Tom Fahey & Professor Fiona Newell. Oral presentations will include nutrition and ageing; brain ageing; allostatic load among the over 50's; dental health; modelling multmorbidity; sensory integration; social connectedness and loneliness and the end of life experience in Ireland. There will also be an interactive poster session (enquires regarding submitting a poster can be sent to tilda@tcd.ie).
