This week PhD student, Sarah Docherty, tells us about her research on the pandemic’s effect on elderly adults and her surprising results on what health means to older adults. Sarah also has some advice for PhD students on being successful during your studies.

We’re currently advertising paid PhD studentships in our department. Please check them out here.

If you’re an older adult who would like to get involved with research, you can join this facebook group: : https://www.facebook.com/HealthyAgeingResearchNU

If you’d like to learn more about how COVID-19 lockdowns have influenced the health and functioning of older adults (70+ years old), please read Sarah’s paper.

We’ll be taking a break until the 10th of January, but I’m currently lining up guests for next semester’s episodes, so please email me if you would like to be on the podcast: genavee.brown@northumbria.ac.uk
