AAG Research Trust’s Inaugural Executive Officer

Catherine Stace has commenced as the inaugural Executive Officer for the AAG Research Trust.

Catherine is an experienced health and medical research not-for-profit leader dedicated to improving health outcomes for Australians. Catherine believes that the interconnectedness of population health; burden of disease and quality of life in Australia will exponentially improve when innovative research and data are responsive to the unmet needs of our ageing population through policy and application.

The primary purpose of this new part time role is to build on the momentum of the AAG Research Trust, through leading the execution of the fundraising strategy and oversee established operations for the AAG Research Trust.

'Moving Pictures' - dementia awareness for CALD

Moving Pictures is a collaboration between the Curtin University and National Ageing Research Institute (both AAG Collaborative Research Centres). Moving Pictures is an innovative multi-media project that aims to raise dementia awareness in Australia’s culturally and linguistically diverse communities using film and media.

Thirteen dementia films and comics are being launched and feature the stories and lived experiences of carers of people living with dementia from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds, and the expert views of key service providers.
