Dr. Wilcox will be opening for a plenary panel regarding Age-friendly Cities and Communities ‘Creating Enabling Environments’.
This panel will include speakers and experts from around the world to discuss and provide a critical perspective on what has been termed ‘age-friendly cities and communities’ by shifting the focus from questions such as ‘What is an ideal city/community for older people?’ to the question of ‘How age-friendly are cities and communities?’.
A topic that is of great concern in every modern country today. Dr. Wilcox is available to discuss this topic and other aged related matters.
