Newsletter Issue 03 (Mar 2019)

Dear Friends,

We are now at the end of the first quarter of 2019 and this year is revving up to be busier than before.

In the coming months, we will be rolling out a series of new initiatives that aim to empower elders living in the community, equip them with the knowledge to fight diabetes and provide platforms for more collaboration between the public and private sectors. We are aiming to create new partnerships to co-develop innovative solutions and opportunities to encourage our seniors to engage socially.

On the editorial front, the editorial team has taken steps to enhance the Longevity Times with contributed content on health, staying fit, nutrition and impact stories to affirm our purpose and the change that we strive to make. We hope the new editorial approach will resonate with you on a more personal level. 

Do let us know your thoughts and suggestions, as well as what you would like to read and see more in the newsletter moving forward. You can send us your comments to

As usual, happy reading and best wishes.
