Spring Research Symposium
May 3–4, 2021
Each year the Centre hosts a free Spring Research Symposium, which promotes dialogue between university researchers and the community-at-large.
The Symposium program typically includes opening and afternoon plenary sessions, concurrent sessions and academic student posters to encourage promotion and dissemination of knowledge of aging in the community. The Symposium brings together researchers, students, seniors, representatives from community organizations, health and social agencies and government.
How to attend
This year's Symposium theme is "Looking forward to aging in a post-pandemic world."
