Being the region’s first multi-disciplinary and intergenerational ageing research, the CHI study aims to holistically investigate the biological, psychological and social factors that affect the ageing process, with the ultimate goal of putting in place nation-wide interventions that can help the elderly age well within their own community.
Dinner commenced after the opening address by A/Prof John Wong, Centre Director for the NUS Mind-Science Centre and the Lin Jo Yan and Yeo Boon Khim Professor in Mental Health and Neuroscience, who welcomed the esteemed guests, followed by a relaxing piano performance of Brahms Intermezzo in B Minor by Professor Bernard Lanskey, Dean of Yong Siew Toh Conservatory of Music at NUS.
