After what is 2021, SECG Blog: Take some time out for yourself!

This quite fitting and final AAG Student and Early Career Group (SECG) blog for 2021 by National SECG working group lead – Communications, Dr Lisa Kouladjian O’Donnell (University of Sydney) makes it a point to not only reflect on the tumultuous year 2021 has been, but to be kind to yourself and importantly – take some time out for yourself and find your “happy place”! This is something that many of us don’t do, so worth everybody having a view.

Abstracts open to 27 Jan for 22nd IAGG World Congress

Submit your abstract for the IAGG World Congress before it closes on 27 January 2022, whilst Symposium submission deadline has now been extended to 27 January.

Check out the Abstract Topics and submit something that will go on the global stage – don’t worry, you wont need to leave your home as it has just moved to digital and they will be pre-recording sessions.

Professors Julie Byles and Keith Hill will be presenting a webinar on tips for making an abstract submission to the IAGG World Congress from 12-1pm (AEDT) on Wednesday 19th January 2022. They are well positioned having been the President and Secretary of IAGG Asia/Oceania Region and are currently the co-chairs for our bid for the 2029 IAGG World Congress in Sydney and Aotearoa New Zealand.

The IAGG World Congress - digital runs from 12 to 16 June 2022. Registration is US$200 (≈AU$284) until 28 April 2022.

Support the AAG bid for the 2029 IAGG World Congress which will be decided at the IAGG World Council meeting during the 2022 World Congress. Your presence and engagement will be important.

The IAGG 2022 Organising Committee recently moved to a fully virtual event, due to the persistent worldwide impact and remaining uncertainty around the COVID-19 crisis. The 22nd IAGG World Congress was originally due to be held face to face in Buenos Aires, Argentina.

Abstract submission is open and close 27 January 2022!

Policy and Practice Update – November 2021

Members have recently been sent the monthly AAG Policy & Practice Update that is up to 30 November 2021. This update is a members only newsletter filled with the latest ways to have your say, contribute to the development of policy and influence changes to practice.

Whilst the Policy and Practice update continues to highlight:

~ Ways to get involved in policy and practice;

~ Continuing opportunities that members can get involved in;

~ And relevant grants, awards, and funding opportunities;

Recipients of this month’s Policy and Practice Update were specifically provided with the opportunity to engage in recent inquires, latest Dementia research and express their views on perceptions of ageing.
