A date not to be missed for your continuing professional development diary is for the International Mortality and Longevity Symposium on 15-17 September in Birmingham. There are many reasons to attend the symposium, which encourages networking and the sharing of ideas and encourages debate between academia, policy-makers and industry from around the world.

Richard Willets, director of longevity at Partnership;
