Community Engagement

 

One of the key objectives of the Healthy Ageing Research Consortium is to promote community engagement and intergenerational learning. ROSA researchers are actively involved in a variety of forms of science communication and engagement with health and aged care consumers and the wider community. You can find an overview of some of these activities on this page.
