To raise awareness and promote healthy aging

  •  Live music featuring Leo Gosselin (leogosselin.com)
  •  20 min. presentation on healthy aging & healthy communities by Dr. Verena Menec
  •  Coffee, tea & refreshments!

People are living longer than ever and, for the first time  in history, there are now more older adults in Canada than children. How can people stay as healthy as possible for as long as possible? And how can we make communities more  age-friendly to that people can stay healthy?

Verena Menec, PhD —Professor, Department of  Community Health Sciences at the University of Manitoba. Her research focuses on factors related to healthy aging,  and how to make communities more age-friendly.
