Call for Posters--The Interdisciplinary Approach to Positive Aging Conference

Deadline March 26, 2010

The aim of the 2nd National Conference on Positive Aging (November 26th & 27th, 2010, Vancouver) is to bring together an interdisciplinary audience of health professionals and researchers to address some of the issues and challenges facing the aging population today. The aim is to hear about the most current research findings from leading experts, learn how research can be translated into practice, and discover useable resources to promote healthier, more positive living for Canada’s older adult population. The importance of purpose and meaning in the later life as well as lessons for health and longevity will be emphasized.

The conference will provide informative lectures, discussions, workshops, poster sessions and ample networking opportunities. A highlight of this conference will be to hear from older adults themselves throughout the program.

Call for Posters: The Interdisciplinary Approach to Positive Aging Conference provides an excellent forum for authors to present their work in an interactive setting. Posters are ideal for presenting scientifically based investigation, clinical case studies, and demonstration projects.
