One of my own students made the news locally this week so congratulations to UWS School of Health, Nursing and Midwifery Dementia Champion programme graduate Barbara Lawson (she’s on the left). Barbara had her poster exhibited at the National Dementia Conference, and of course Barbara is currently one of the students in the MSc in Gerontology and Later Life Studies programme . (Yes we are re-naming it this year).
For more about what Barbara does and where she works go to the Greenock Telegraph page at:
Thanks also are due this week to another of my masters students, Gabriela Mitas for bringing the following to my attention. Radio 4 have a series of programmes called FutureProofing, a new series of which began this week. The first programme was about Ageing and explores the technology and demography which herald a revolution in the ideas we may hold about ageing, and a fundamental shift in the expectations we all have for the course our lives might take. To listen to the broadcast which is available via the BBC iPlayer go to http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b0787dyz You might also like their previous programme on Mobility and watch out for a future broadcast that will look at Memory.
