I aspire for a world in which communities actively engage to create age-friendly environments where older adults can meaningfully contribute and participate. My PhD project will investigate relationship between social engagement, wellbeing and brain ageing across ethonoracial groups and cultures so as to progress dementia risk identification and management. It will seek to explore the barriers and enablers to older adult social engagement at the individual, community, societal level as well at from a policy context. Through future social enterprise I hope to find new and exciting ways to connect at risk populations to existing and novel resources, supports and services.
