During this short stay at Faber, I will work on the topic of Gender and Health related to aging and I'll analyze this question from a syndemic point of view. In fact, I guess that it would be a great opportunity as I imagine that the other residents probably will be specialists in other fields different to mine, and this it is, in fact, a unique occasion in order to share knowledge, experience and ideas that I am sure it would be very productive and even it could be a chance for opening new fruitful collaborations.
