In creating its Foundation, the French Academy of Medicine wished to place at the service of society as a whole its unique ability to bring together, on essential health and social issues and around the best French and international experts, all the administrative, political, medical, scientific, economic and associative stakeholders.
In order to fulfil its mission, the FAM has chosen to organise debates open to the public and the media and directly relayed to the public authorities, based on excellent scientific publications or communications. In addition to their level, these debates are distinguished from other events of the same type by the benefit of the institutional status and the guarantees of credibility and ethics that are recognised at the Academy of Medicine.
The FAM is following up on its presentation last June of the SAPEA (Science Advice for Policy by European Academies) report on the future of ageing in Europe and its care, to launch a cycle of 5 debates on the situation in France entitled “Society & Ageing” which will address 5 topics:
Demographics and the economy, Falls, sensory disturbances and public policy, Taking care of yourself and not being afraid of the gaze of others, The contribution of new technologies, End-of-life anxiety.
These topics will be discussed by academics with sociologists, philosophers, architects, representatives of patient associations, stratups and companies … These debates will be followed by a call for associative projects in 2020 to deal with the subject.
THIRD DEBATE : TAKING CARE YOURSELF AND NOT FEARING OTHER PEOPLE’S GAZE; SPORT, WELL-BEING, FOOD, AND ALTERNATIVE MEDICINE
This third debate focused on well-being and health, both physical and mental, which must be at the centre of an individual’s lifestyle and be included in education from an early age to promote healthy ageing. Regular sports practice, meditation, social and family bonding, activity and intellectual stimulation are all elements that help to improve one’s health. The place of plastic surgery, the question of “ageism” and the necessary change in the way society should look at its elders were also discussed.
Proceedings and synthesis coming soon.
Speakers: Pr Jean-Pierre Michel, Dr Alain Calmat (President of the CNOSF medical commission), Kylia Claude (Mamie Regale and Silver Fourchette), Dr Philippe Denormandie (orthopaedic surgeon), Pr Marc Revol (plastic surgeon), Marie-Claire Chain (volunteer at the OLD’UP association and retired psychotherapist) and Dr Jacques Waynberg (founder and president of the Institute of Sexology).
