Lecture/Seminar How Age-Friendly is BC? 2012-04-18 19:00:00

The University of Victoria's Retirees Association and the Centre on Aging—with support from the university—presents Masterminds 2012, a free lecture series running each Wednesday evening in April.


What makes a community senior-friendly? In an attempt to enhance the activity level and independence of seniors living throughout the province, a three-year research study was conducted in over 30 communities. In this presentation, Dr. Gallagher will outline many of the lessons learned and will provide guidelines for communities wishing to implement age-friendly initiatives.


Elaine Gallagher is professor emeritus in the School of Nursing and is the former director of the Centre on Aging. She was named Outstanding Alumna by Simon Fraser University in 2007 and named Researcher of the Year (2002) by the Canadian Association of Nurse Researchers for her work on falls and injury prevention among older people. Dr. Gallagher is best known for her work on Studies of Environments which Promote Safety (STEPS), the first published study on the epidemiology of seniors’ slips, trips and falls in public places. She is currently the lead Canadian researcher for an international project on age-friendly communities. 


Please register by calling 250-721-6369 and plan to arrive early, as seating is limited. There is a $2.25 charge in all campus parking lots during evenings.
