Norwich Institute of Healthy Ageing – Launch

Join us online on Thursday 26 November (6-7:30pm), as we officially launch the Norwich Institute of Healthy Ageing (NIHA).

NIHA is a new research centre made of more than 200 researchers from across the University of East Anglia. They will work with the wider community, local government and researchers from the Norwich Research Park on a range of projects to improve health and lives in the region.

Research areas will include nutrition, physical activity, smoking cessation, sleep, social activity and medication adherence. Researchers will also look to understand behaviour change and the implications of behaviour on health and wellbeing. Engagement with the wider community and local government will ensure that the research is translated into real change for better local and wider public health.

The online launch event will be hosted by UEA Vice Chancellor Prof David Richardson and Institute Director Prof Anne-Marie Minihane.

A keynote speech will be given by George MacGinnis – Challenge Director, Healthy Ageing, UKRI followed by a series of ‘Pecha Kucha’ presentations.

Following the presentations there will be an Ask Us Anything session, where attendees can submit questions for the panel. We are asking for questions to be submitted in advance.
