Take part in a new study
This research would not have been possible without the interest and
support of members of the Ageing Mind Initiative and so the team want to
send their thanks to everyone who took part.
The research is ongoing and the team are currently recruiting people who
are planning to retire in the next six months to find out more about the
role of social networks in the retirement transition. This involves
completing some online surveys about your experience of the transition. If
you would like to be involved or know of others who would be interested
in being involved, please contact Ben Lam at ben.lam@uq.edu.au or visit
www.groups4health.com/g4r/
where you can access the survey.
(Details of the study also listed on page 17 of the Newsletter)
