TILDA Researcher Presents at Trinity Week Symposium on 'Happy Healthy Ageing'

The Faculty of Health Sciences, Trinity College Dublin, hosted this year’s programme of events for Trinity Week on the theme of The Science of Happiness, which was open to public participation. TILDA Research Fellow Dr. Cathal McCrory presented on Thursday 10th April at the 'Happy Healthy Ageing' Symposium. Dr McCrory spoke on ‘Life Satisfaction and Quality of Life among Older People in Ireland: Findings from the Irish Longitudinal Study on Ageing (TILDA)’ and discussed how evidence emerging from the Irish Longitudinal Study on Ageing (TILDA) has contributed to our understanding of the way in which quality of life changes over the age span, and how quality of life in mid-life and older ages is shaped by health, wealth, and the social environment.
