In conjunction with the APA Annual General Meeting, the 2013 Borrie Lecture was held on 21st November. Again ADSRI provided valuable support including the venue at ANU. Over 50 people registered to attend the lecture, which was provided by Associate Professor Heather Booth of ADSRI. Heather’s topic was “How long will we live? The longevity revolution and what it means for Australia”, a topic with considerable relevance for all of us. Heather’s lecture included a plea for more research on the characteristics and conditions of older people as well as a call for more data to be disaggregated by older age groups. Presentation slides available in the Members Only section.
