9th Annual IRMACS Day
On Friday, April 4th, 2014, the IRMACS Centre will celebrate its 9th anniversary of operation and the launch of the IRMACS Centre's 2014 Thematic Year dedicated to the pan-Canadian research initiative:
AGE-WELL: Aging Gracefully across Environments using Technology to Support Wellness, Engagement, and Long Life.
A globally aging population demands innovative approaches to ensure people across societies can live and age well. In particular, there is a need to move from health and social agendas that emphasize dependency as we age, to ones that promote healthy aging and independence. There is now a huge interest in how we can harness the potential of technology to enhance the quality of life and health of seniors and to provide high-quality and sustainable services and solutions to meet the needs of the current and future generations of older adults in Canada.
We are preparing a series of events and we hope that you will join us.
