Description

The University of Calgary’s Brenda Strafford Centre on Aging together with the Canadian Frailty Network (CFN) and the Alberta Health Services Seniors Health Strategic Clinical Network (SCN) are pleased to invite you to a half-day public town hall to explore frailty and resilience in an aging Alberta.

The afternoon will feature keynote speakers and leading researchers, as well as voices from the community. Throughout the afternoon, our goal is to better understand how frailty impacts Alberta’s communities and ways that we can contribute to resilience in aging, at both individual and population levels.
