Nordic Congress of Gerontology – Dilemmas in Ageing Societies

On behalf of the organizing committee we invite you to the 21st Nordic Congress of Gerontology in Copenhagen, Denmark in June 10th – 13th, 2012. This interdisciplinary congress will include several aspects of gerontology and geriatric medicine and all sessions are in English. The congress theme Dilemmas in Ageing Societies points to challenges of ageing societies and questions that arise from theory and empirical studies about ageing and older people’s lives. Although most people live longer, there is an increasing polarization of health and living conditions. What are the main dilemmas as we take a closer look at men and women, rich and poor, or at different ethnic and religious groups?
