Simultaneously, there will be a symposium which includes guests, elderly citizens and experts from specific topics such as data analytics and behavior change etc.

REACH will benefit from an exceptional opportunity that EIP Group will hold its annual meeting at this REACH event. EIP AHA Action Group consists of about 100 organizations including care centers, industries and public health authorities. It aims to understand the underlying factors of frailty so as to improve prevention strategies and manage frailty syndrome and its consequences in a better way.
