Monthly News Roundup – October 2015

Last month, Global Health Aging explored diverse topics such as elderly refugees, menopause, physical activity and older caregivers. The blog is always on the lookout for regular and guest writers, so it’s been great to work with more companies and guest writers including the regular writers. WHO Centre for Health Development is the featured company for October. Let’s take a look at what happened this past month at Global Health Aging.
