Event description

Description

Mark Your Calendars! You’re invited to the 2017 Network for Aging Research (NAR) Symposium

Even in something as natural as aging, research and innovation can help make the process smoother and improve quality of life. Growing and leading aging research is an opportunity the University of Waterloo has identified, and the Network for Aging Research (NAR) is creating a foundation to support it.

Identified by the University of Waterloo’s Vice-President Academic & Provost, the NAR is a strategic and essential step toward advancing aging research. Established in 2014, the NAR will act as a networking tool for researchers who are conducting research in aging, and foster collaborative aging research across campus through a seed grant program and by supporting events related to aging research.

The NAR has a campus-wide scope and is designed to support networking and research across all six faculties, and at the affiliated colleges.

Theme: Engagement in Innovation

Date: Monday, June 26, 2017

Time: 8:00am to 3:00pm

Keynote Speaker: Olive Bryanton, 80 year old PhD student at the University of PEI. Her research uses Photovoice to learn about and understand the realities of women age 85 and older living in rural PEI.
