Thursday the 6th of July I’ll be presenting at the
The British Society of Gerontology 46th Annual Conference, Centre for Innovative Ageing, Swansea University,

Especially, how surveillance is used with wandering or falls.
So hopefully I see some interesting work next week!
I’ll close off with some other hints:
