People aged over 60 and in good health are invited for direct involvement in research projects as participants and for participation in focus group discussions or similar that help us to design our research studies.  Led by Professor Anna Whittaker, the Stirling 1000 Elders group is an essential resource for the University‚Äôs Healthy Ageing Researchers. The Stirling 1000 Elders are key to helping us to understand how to promote and maintain good health and wellbeing in older age.
