Health and Wellbeing Conference Lancaster 26/10/17

Lancaster and Morecambe U3A, under the auspices of North West Region U3A, are offering their third conference. We all want to live not just longer but healthier lives and the aim of the day is to inform and enthuse participants to achieve this. The day will start with consideration of what health actually is leading to presentations considering how to live well in later life and the role of pathological testing in maintaining health.

Presentations will lead to consideration of and debate on the truth behind the headlines in Alzheimer’s Research, the role of eye-tracking in early detection of Alzheimer’s, non- pharmacological approaches to disease and the role of exercise in active, healthy ageing. The security challenges associated with ageing will also be considered. The day will conclude with an open forum.

The detailed Conference Agenda and Booking Form are available on the Lancaster & Morecambe U3A >>HERE and the North West Region websites >>HERE
