What happens at STAR meetings?
STAR meetings are a great way for any student attending the University of Manitoba to meet other students interested in aging related topics.
Meeting topics vary and are based on STAR member recommendations and interests. We've had Centre on Aging Research Affiliates talk about their aging related research, invited community members to talk about their aging related careers and to share their own career paths with students, hosted networking events to get to know one another, and hosted outreach activities to help support older people in the community.
As we move forward this term, we will be working on holding meetings in a hybrid format where possible so UM students can attend meetings both in person and virtually. The UM's masking requirements will be in effect for all in person meetings. As of May 4, KN95 masks are highly recommended, but 3-ply medical masks (minimum ASTM Grade 2) will also be acceptable.
