Megan Acton, who graduated last month with an MA in Ageing and Society has just been appointed as Project Officer for the International Federation on Ageing (IFA), based in Toronto. The IFA’s vision is a ‘world of healthy people whose rights are both protected and respected.’ The Project Officer position plays a central role in working with individuals, organizations and academia across the globe by supporting their engagement to promote programs, services and policy to improve the quality of life of older people.
Megan said that her master’s degree at King’s College London immensely allowed her to gain this role, due to the multidisciplinary taught courses, dissertation on age-friendly cities (supervised by Professor Anthea Tinker), and internship module for Public Health England’s Older People Team. She looks forward to beginning her role as a Project Officer for the IFA and is thankful her experience at King’s College London has helped to get her there.
