We’re launching a new public lecture series, sharing BU research and expertise through free online events.
The series will be centred around the areas of strength identified through the Our BU Story campaign, showcasing the ways in which we are enriching society and helping to tackle some of the biggest issues facing our world.
The first event, Living better for longer, takes place from 7pm-8.30pm on Thursday 17th February and will focus on healthy ageing.
Professor of Nutrition Jane Murphy and Postdoctoral Research Fellow Dr Sophia Amenyah will discuss the importance of good nutrition as we age, while Professor of Public Health & Wellbeing Ann Hemingway will talk about her research exploring ways to stay active and independent for longer.
Principal Academic in Psychology Dr Samuel Nyman will share his research into whether Tai Chi can support people with dementia and their carers, and there will be the chance to take part in an interactive Tai Chi demonstration.
The online lectures will take place on a monthly basis. Future events will explore the past, present and future of British seaside resorts, the wildlife of Poole Harbour, and how humans have adapted to crisis and disaster through the ages.
