NZPATHS Project Symposium 2023

Join us for the ‘New Zealand Prospective Older Adult Transport and Health Study’ (NZPATHS) Project Symposium 2023 which takes place on Tuesday, 21 March 2023 in Wellington.

This Symposium is for practitioners, policymakers, researchers and others with an interest in older adult out-of-home mobility.

The Symposium will present early findings from NZPATHS, our longitudinal study of older drivers and family members, and introduce our new Kaupapa Māori qualitative Whānau Study.

 Refreshments and a light lunch will be provided, and this year’s Symposium will be an in-person and online event.
