Professor Robert Adams (affiliate), Professor of Respiratory and Sleep Medicine and theĀ Adelaide Institute for Sleep Health, and ProfessorĀ  Gary Wittert, Dr Tiffany Gill and Professor Catherine Hill from the University of Adelaide, and Professor Malcolm Battersby, Head of Psychiatry at Flinders University, have been awarded a Hospital Research Foundation grant for $50,000 to define how measures imposed during the COVID-19 pandemic have altered the trajectory of mental health and well-being of middle-aged and elderly South Australians.

The study, which will begin shortly, will be undertaken by interviewing participants of two longitudinal population cohort studies, the Florey Adelaide Male Ageing Study coordinated by the Freemasons Foundation Centre for Men’s Health and the North West Adelaide Health Study, coordinated by the Population Research Outcomes Studies Unit which works in close partnership with the Freemasons Foundation Centre for Men’s Health.
