Ngaire (Ngaire) Kerse, Joyce Cook Chair in Ageing Well
I am committed to improving the health and wellbeing of older people in New Zealand and have led a programme of research about maximising health for older people for over 20 years. It is a privilege for me to hold the role of president of the New Zealand Association of Gerontology. My areas of interest are falls prevention, activity promotion, health and wellbeing in advanced age and technology to assist independent living. People with dementia and their carers are also important for older populations.
