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.
