After 2 weeks that included National Arthritis Week, National Mental Health Day, National Osteoporosis Day amongst news items such as older adults live longer if they are happy I realised I just don’t have time to actually construct a blog post around every bit of news I want to publicise to you. Therefore I have created this page. It will mostly be links to information/articles that I think will be interesting to you and I hope to update it weekly. Another way to keep up to date is to follow me on twitter where I can be found tweeting as WLF_FARNHAM.
