Changing Horizons in Gerontology

 United in Solidarity with Older People

Under this banner, for the duration of our membership year, we will deliver a series of online educational, research and networking events for our members.  These will include symposia, lectures (including our annual ALONE Willie Bermingham Lecture), special interest group meetings, and other events.
