You are invited to a workshop by Professor Julie Byles B MED PHD FAAHMS Director, Research Centre for Gender, Health and Ageing, University of Newcastle. AAG’s 2016 Glenda Powell National Travelling Fellow.

Professor Julie Byles is director of the Australian Longitudinal Study on Women's Health at the University of Newcastle. Her main interest is in the oldest cohort, which involved 14,342 women who were aged 70 to 75 years at baseline in 1996. She is also closely involved with the NSW 45 and Up Study, a longitudinal study involving over 266,000 men and women across New South Wales, as a member of the Scientific Steering Committee, and as a co-investigator on an NHMRC funded project to follow-up the first 100,000 participants to determine social, environmental and economic factors and their relationships with health and ageing.

The workshop will include a presentation titled 19 to 90: A long view of life from the Australian Longitudinal Study on Women’s Health and an opportunity to participate in discussions.
