NZAG2018: The Mosaic of Ageing

On behalf of the New Zealand Association of Gerontology and the organising committee it is my pleasure to invite you to attend our 2018 conference to be held in Auckland, New Zealand at the Ellerslie Event Centre, Thursday 6th to Saturday 8th September. Whatever your discipline or interest in ageing, we believe you will find much that appeals within our rich and varied programme.

The theme of the conference is the ‘Mosaic of ageing’. Within this theme, the focus will be on finding speakers who come from a strong scientific evidence base. The range of international and national speakers and champions of a society in which people age will be presenting a programme that is rich and diverse in content. The ongoing prosperity and well-being of our ageing society is dependent on sound research, wise policy making, and informed debate. This conference provides the opportunity to actively engage with issues that will influence ensuring older people are able to age appropriately and with dignity in New Zealand.

I invite you to join us at our 2018 conference in Auckland, The City of Sails, in what we promise to be conference not to be missed.

Associate Professor Stephen Neville
