Communication and Outreach

Center for Healthy Aging, CEHA, is engaged in outreach activities designed to foster interactions between the CEHA research community and Danish society at large. We want citizens, public authorities and health professionals to engage with healthy aging research and to learn more about the Center’s activities. We also want the public’s perspectives and experiences to inform CEHAs vision for the future. The aim is to make CEHA the most valued and important source for news, discussion and opinion about healthy aging in Denmark.

The outreach program has four major aims:

  • Disseminate
    To disseminate CEHA research results via printed and electronic mass media and on the internet via the CEHA website
  • Dialogue-based communication
    To build a dialogue-based communication platform using events and social media to promote dialogue between citizens, professionals, politicians and researchers
  • Interdisiplinary communication
    To enhance the effectiveness and internal cohesiveness (identity) of the Center by strengthening interdisciplinary communication and dialogue among researchers in the Center through seminars and workshops
  • Awareness
    To increase awareness of CEHA and its brand within Denmark and internationally; to improve networking at national and international levels among aging researchers.

The Communication and Outreach Platform is headed by Professor Ken Arnold.
