Norwich Institute of Healthy Ageing - Launch

Event Details

Thursday, 26 November, 2020 -
18:00 to 19:30

Join us online on Thursday 26 November (6-7:30pm), as we officially launch the Norwich Institute of Healthy Ageing (NIHA).  

NIHA is a new research centre made of more than 200 researchers from across UEA. They will work with the community, local government and researchers from the Norwich Research Park on a range of projects to improve health and lives in the region.  

From UEA, researchers from Norwich Medical School, the School of Health Sciences, Norwich Business School, the School of Biological Sciences and the School of Computing Sciences will work collaboratively, with support from UEA Health and Social Care Partners.  

They will be joined by colleagues from Quadram Institute, the Earlham Institute, the John Innes Centre and the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital to research areas including nutrition, physical activity, smoking cessation, sleep, social activity and medication adherence. Researchers will also look to understand behaviour change and the implications of behaviour on health and wellbeing.  

The new partnership will also work with the wider community, Public Health Norfolk, Norwich City Council, Norfolk County Council and the New Anglia Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP) to ensure that the research is translated into real change for better local and wider public health. 

The online launch event will be hosted by UEA Vice Chancellor Prof David Richardson and Institute Director Prof Anne-Marie Minihane.  

A keynote speech will be given by George MacGinnis - Challenge Director, Healthy Ageing, UKRI followed by ‘Pecha Kucha’ presentations and an 'Ask me Anything' Q&A, where members of the public can submit questions for the panel. We are asking for questions to be submitted in advance.
