Event Details

Find out how to live a longer, healthier and happier life, with Annabel Streets and Susan Saunders, founders of The Age-Well Project.

Research shows that diseases presenting in old age often take root much earlier. What steps can we take to put a stop to the diseases associated with later life? And what should we be doing now to ensure a healthy, joyful life?

Annabel Streets and Susan Saunders spent their 30s and 40s climbing the career ladder, having children and caring for elderly parents, ultimately leaving them exhausted and stressed. With family histories of age-related diseases that struck too soon and too savagely, they turned to the new science of longevity for  answers.

For five years Annabel and Susan immersed themselves in the latest medical studies, radically overhauled their lives and documented their findings in a popular blog, The Age-Well Project, which was recently expanded as a book. Now they feel better than ever before - and will be joining us to share their discoveries for ageing well.

Course content

  • You and ageing: understand your ageing body and brain, and your unique risk factors
  • Diet: not just how we eat but how, when and where
  • The forms of exercise that work best for you, as you prepare for later life
  • Learn how to keep your brain wiring and firing - and why this is critical for a disease-free old age
  • How much sleep do we need? Learn how to get to sleep, how to have the right sleep, and how to stay asleep
  • Staying on track: tips and strategies for ageing well every day
