Welcome to the engAGE Ageing Symposium 2017 “Towards Successful Cognitive Ageing”. This year’s theme broadly covers topics on the challenges and evidence-based interventions related to cognitive ageing. This symposium aims to stimulate discourse on the pressing concern for the foreseeable increase in cognitive problems faced by a rapidly ageing population.
We are delighted to line up two keynote addresses and a distinguished panel of researchers and visionaries as speakers.

Prof. Linda Lam, Chair of Department of Psychiatry, Faculty of Medicine, The Chinese University of Hong Kong will deliver her keynote lecture on the life course approach towards healthy ageing based on epidemiological observations, translation models and intervention studies.
This symposium offers a platform for participants, representatives in related sectors and experts to interact and exchange insights, ideas, solutions and new developments toward cognitive ageing and related interventions.
