The Healthy Lifespan Institute Advisory Board comprises of internationally recognised academics, and leaders from industry, government and non-governmental organisations.
Members have been selected by the Healthy Lifespan Institute Core Management Group to provide a balanced range of world leading expertise on ageing and multimorbidity from a variety of perspectives.
The primary function of the Advisory Board is to provide a strategic steer to the achievement of the overall aims and objectives developed by the Executive Board, to guide quality improvement, and to assess effectiveness and performance of the Institute’s activity against its mission (to lead multidisciplinary efforts to prevent multimorbidity and frailty by the development of new policies, services and products).
The Advisory Board meets once a year and is chaired by the Advisory Board Chair (Lord Robert Kerslake).
