Regional Remote and Rural (RRR) SIG
The AAG Board approved the establishment of a Regional, Rural and Remote AAG Special Interest Group (RSIG) at it's September 2016 Board meeting. Here are a few words from Dr Rachel Winterton, the Group’s inaugural Convenor.
As the inaugural convenor, I am pleased to announce the recent establishment of the Regional, Rural and Remote Special Interest Group (RSIG). At last year’s AAG conference in Alice Springs, it was evident that there were many AAG members undertaking innovative, high quality research within rural, regional and remote settings, and this SIG has been developed to draw these researchers along with service providers in aged care, health and allied health to make a difference.
The purpose of the AAG Regional, Rural and Remote Special Interest Group is to provide a platform for the discussion, development and promotion of rural, regional and remote ageing research in Australasia. It is hoped that this will lead to increased opportunities for information sharing and collaboration, and we would like to get everyone together at this year’s AAG conference to discuss some of the future priorities for this group – watch out for more information on this!
Joining the AAG Regional, Rural and Remote SIG is free to all AAG members, and we welcome any AAG members interested in ageing in rural, regional and remote environments. Click here to join or to find out more information the group
