The great ageing debate

Afternoons with Mike van Acker

The pop star David Bowie once said that ageing is an extraordinary process where you become the person you always should have been.
So is getting older something most people celebrate or something they quietly wish away? And is it really any easier for men than it is for women when it comes to ageing?
Professor Nancy Pachana is a clinical geropsychologist and neuropsychologist, she's the Director of the University of Queensland's Healthy Ageing Initiative and her book is called Ageing: A Very Short Introduction. Nancy is chatting with ABC Radio Brisbane's Mike Van Acker.
