Announcement of 2024 Gary Andrews International Fellow - Susana Concordo Harding

We are pleased to formally announce that the Gary Andrews International Fellow for 2024 is Susana Concordo Harding.

Susana's work aligns seamlessly with our conference theme, focusing on innovative approaches to addressing the challenges of ageing societies. Her insights into enhancing the positive aspects of caregiving and practical strategies for reducing or delaying care dependency resonate deeply with our conference's focus.

Susana is Senior Director at the International Longevity Centre Singapore, an Initiative of Tsao Foundation. She is also Adjunct Senior Research Fellow at College of Nursing & Health Sciences at Flinders University. Her policy and research interests are ageing and gender and its intersectionality, caregiving, financial security, community resilience, active and successful ageing, long term care, empowerment, and community development. Susana graduated Cum Laude from the University of Santo Tomas (Manila, Philippines) with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Economics and holds master's degree in public administration (MPA) from the Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy at National University of Singapore. She is also the Honorary Secretary of the Board of Directors at Centre for Seniors, a non-profit, Social Service Agency that is dedicated to helping seniors to remain meaningfully engage in work and in life, as well as Honorary Secretary of the Gerontological Society of Singapore.

We eagerly anticipate Susana's arrival in Australia, where she will deliver the Gary Andrews International Fellow plenary address at the 2024 AAG Conference in Hobart.
