Dr Jan Gregson is the speaker and has been a Specialist in Geriatrics since 2004, having worked in Liverpool, England and Rotorua before coming to Whanganui in 2010. She is a Consultant Physician and Geriatrician for the Whanganui District Health Board. I can recommend her presentation and delivery skills: we will learn and laugh!
It is only recent attitudes – of the last 70 years or so – and only in some places in the world that describe elders as a social burden. The facts, however, show our many and varied contributions to society. With our city having a significant number of kaumātua and elders, we will be particularly aware of this. Jan’s talk will give us information, knowledge and understanding of what really influences successful ageing. The details are fascinating. For example, Jan will tell us about our brain’s cognitive functioning, including its adaptability and resilience. She has much to tell us about Successful Ageing based on research and experience.
