Lifelong Health and Wellbeing: a symposium for PhD researchers

April 16th, 1pm to 5pm

What are the major challenges that must be overcome if we are to build a society where good health and wellbeing is the norm, for rich and poor, old and young alike?

Understanding the interplay between health and wellbeing across the lifecourse is one of six major, cross-disciplinary themes identified by Research Councils UK (the strategic partnership of the UKs seven research funding councils).

We would like to invite you, as one of Manchester’s PhD researchers, to engage with this challenge by informing and inspiring your peers at a half-day symposium on the 16th April.

Come along and tell us what facet of this problem you are addressing with your research, or what you think needs to be addressed by future projects.

All attendees will present for just 10 minutes, with a focus on themes and issues, not methods and techniques. Use Powerpoint if you like, or better still why not try out something new?

It will be a chance to network, to inspire and to be inspired.

At the end of the afternoon you will vote for your favourite presentation, and the winner will receive a £100 voucher of their choosing (iTunes, Amazon, Ethical Superstore, you name it).

Registration is open to PhD researchers from any discipline.  Register for a limited place at

Organised by the Health, Wellbeing and Ageing Research Group, CMIST
