Dr Bradley Willcox - Keynote Speaker Day 2: Age-Friendly Cities and Communities - 'Creating Enabling Environments'

June 09, 2016  · 1 min read

Bradley J. Willcox is Professor and Director of Research at the Department of Geriatric Medicine, John A. Burns School of Medicine, University of Hawaii, at the Kuakini Medical Center (KMC) Campus.


Dr. Willcox trained in Medicine at the University of Toronto, Internal Medicine at the Mayo Clinic, and Geriatric Medicine at Harvard Medical School.


Later this month at the 13th IFA Conference, leading experts will be the first to explore the implications for older people in natural and human-induced disasters and health emergencies.


Dr. Wilcox will be opening for a plenary panel regarding Age-friendly Cities and Communities ‘Creating Enabling Environments’.


This panel will include speakers and experts from around the world to discuss and provide a critical perspective on what has been termed ‘age-friendly cities and communities’ by shifting the focus from questions such as ‘What is an ideal city/community for older people?’ to the question of ‘How age-friendly are cities and communities?’.


A topic that is of great concern in every modern country today. Dr. Wilcox is available to discuss this topic and other aged related matters.
