Event Overview
Welcome message:

Ageing in a Foreign Land will address the needs of the migrant diaspora with regard to ageing and health, service provision, language and cultural identity, issues of Greek and other Culturally and Linguistically Diverse communities in Australia and overseas.  
We welcome attendance and participation from academics, researchers, practitioners, policy makers, service providers and aged care workers. It is an unique opportunity for institutions and individuals to be part of a very exciting event, extend their learning, share their experiences with others, promote their activities and create a dynamic and vibrant network to further advance their knowledge and careers.

The motto of our conference is: "Real people with real experiences".
