December BGS Newsletter out now

BGS Newsletter: Issue 68 December 2018

The latest edition of the BGS Newsletter is out now online and members will be receiving their print copies in the post soon.

The final edition of 2018 reflects on the BGS Autumn Meeting 2018, how those involved in the care of older people can work with complexity rather than against it, and the role of diet and nutrition in healthy ageing.

We also introduce the new BGS President, Dr Tahir Masud, and catch up with the winners of the BGS Special Medal and Marjory Warren Lifetime Achievement Award to reflect on their inspirational and influential work.

The perception that older people are somehow so different that they lose their civil and legal rights and their humanity is simply unacceptable.
