Monthly News Roundup – October 2016

Last month, the publication focused on Europe and Australia. Have you ever been to Paris? If no, it should be on your bucket list!

Many ageing meetings are currently underway but from November 18-20, the 4th Annual World Congress of Geriatrics and Gerontology – 2016 will be held in Kaohsiung, Taiwan. The conference presents the latest research results, ideas, developments and applications in breaking research, medical management, innovative technologies,, social responsibility and more. This year, the conference theme of “Better Health in Old Age” rings true for everyone.

Why have six news articles? Because the newsletter has six parts! From religion to memory, we hope you enjoy these fascinating articles.

Peer-reviewed articles continue to showcase important research. Published in the Journal of Clinical Interventions in Aging, our selected article evaluates the preliminary effects of tai chi qigong (TCQ) on improving night-time sleep quality of older adults with cognitive impairment. TCQ combines slow, deliberate movements, meditation, and breathing exercises.

Our featured company is Centre for Ageing Better, an independent charitable foundation working to help everybody enjoy a good later life. For more information, visit Centre for Ageing Better.

And a quote to keep you inspired till next month.
