Research in the health, treatment and well-being of the oldest old
28 June 2018
How can treatment be improved in the last years of our life? Should we change our preconceptions about the well-being of today's oldest old?
The Danish Aging Research Center (DARC) at the Department of Public Health of the University of Southern Denmark (SDU) conducts research in human aging, focusing on the oldest old (90+ years).
Professor and Head of the Centre Kaare Christensen, University of Southern Denmark (SDU), receives DKK 10 million from VELUX FONDEN for a five-year project. The project will be conducted in a collaboration with Professor Jens Søndergaard and Professor Frans Boch Waldorff from the Research Unit for General Practice, and Professor Peter Simonsen and Professor Anne-Marie Mai from the Department for the Study of Culture, all from SDU.
The three research environments will collect new knowledge about the health, treatment and well-being of the oldest old age groups.
