Join us on May 1 for our Spring Research Symposium! This year’s sessions will address the health and well being of older adults through managing medications, maintaining oral health, keeping family caregivers healthy; reviewing the future of home care services; understanding the legal issues around medical assistance in dying, as well as the context of aging from a local and historical perspective. The Symposium will be kicking off with a reflection on the Centre on Aging’s history of nearly 35 years of aging research at the University of Manitoba.

May 2 we are hosting a full day workshop where participants will have an opportunity to discuss the objectives from the World Health Organization’s Global Strategy and Action Plan on Ageing and Health within a Manitoba context.

There is no cost to attend the Spring Research Symposium. It is free to attend and open to everyone, e.g., researchers, students, practitioners, decision makers, and the general public. We hope to see you there!
