Connections: Past, Present and Future 


How can we make the journey of ageing a better one? By reconnecting to our past, examining our present, and striving towards the future, we will reimagine how this voyage can be made more gratifying. Join us to connect with gerontology experts and community partners as we delve into facets of ageing like caregiving, gerontechnology, lifelong learning, and physical and mental well-being. 


Jointly brought to you by the National Library Board (NLB) and Singapore University of Social Sciences (SUSS).
