Do you remember being 21?

Study members may remember ‘Penny Lane’ by the Beatles was requested and played for them on the radio to celebrate their 21st birthday.

To celebrate their 65th birthday, the MRC Lifelong Health and Ageing team contacted various radio stations to request that ‘Penny Lane’ was again played and dedicated to study members in the MRC National Survey of Health and Development.

That was just one way of thanking participants for their lifelong dedication to health research.
