The title for this year’s essay competition is: Can we live and age as who we truly are? The future of equality, diversity and inclusion
We all aspire to live as our true authentic selves. How can Old Age Psychiatry support equality, diversity and inclusion in the future? Or is aging frowned upon? We would love to hear your thoughts on how Old Age Psychiatry can impact the future of equality, diversity and inclusion and empowering older adults to have control over how they wish to lead their lives.
