16 November 2020

Professor Nancy Pachana from UQ's School of Psychology, features on Nine News about UQ's commitment to age-friendly research, programs and policies.

Leader of the initiative, Professor Nancy Pachana 

Professor Pachana said the initiative would address ageism, lifelong education, workforce issues, research and community outreach.

"We are going to see more mature aged students in every part of the university taking undergraduate and postgraduate programs. 

“I am passionate about this initiative as I believe universities play an important role in not only educating the next generation of researchers, practitioners and citizens, but they also serve the needs, goals and aspirations of our society.

“Older adults are a vital component of our community and understanding how to make life better for all of us as we grow older is timely and important.”
