New £50m 'Centre for Ageing Better' in the UK seeks input on its 10 year priorities

A new organization has been launched in the UK that is looking to spend a sizable amount of money on best-practice, evidence-based programs, and are seeking input on the topics they should be working on, and how they should be working. This is the first of a couple of posts on the topic. This one describes what the Centre is and what the key topics are, and asks for your input on the topics - what's most important, what's missing? The second post will make a few observations of my own.
