Event description

Description

In an era where we are all expected to live longer, the GAA and Trinity College Dublin have come together to highlight the secrets to successful ageing through a series of regional seminars.

For example, did you know that people living by the sea are less likely to be depressed? That optimists live longer? That friendship and good social life is as important as low cholesterol for heart disease? That quality of life continues to get better after 50 for almost another 30 years? These nuggets of knowledge, and much more, will be explored by Professor Rose Anne Kenny, a world expert in healthy ageing, as part of this series of public talks entitled ‘How to Age Well: Evidence from TILDA’.

GAA ambassadors from participating counties are supporting the seminar series. They visited TILDA’s research hub in Trinity College to experience some of the tests that the research participants undergo, including cognitive tests, gait analysis, grip strength, bone density, and aural and visual testing.

Details of the seminars are available on www.gaa.ie/community and further information will also be made available through local media in the participating counties in coming weeks.
