“NICA’s mission is a hugely exciting, challenging, and necessary one. What excites me about my role is the opportunity I have to be involved in every part of it. Communication cuts across everything we’re doing to benefit the lives of older adults – from talking to partners, pitching products, and engaging with our VOICE community – all with the aim of transforming the discourse around ageing and longevity. I can’t wait to watch new conversations take place.”
