Birmingham 1000 Elders
The Centre for Musculoskeletal Ageing Research (CMAR) has an overriding objective to translate research knowledge into public benefit to ensure that adults are fit for old age, and therefore places huge importance on involving local people in research activity.
The Birmingham 1000 Elders is a group dedicated to bringing researchers and older adults together to carry out research into how we can age more healthily. Based at the University of Birmingham, the 1000 Elders aims to reach out to healthy adults over the age of 60 to take part in and share the findings of research activities that seek to improve the quality of life in old age. The Birmingham 1000 Elders thus play a key role in ensuring that people enjoy their old age, not endure it.
