12:00pm–12:45pm
Temerty Medicine Talk
Details

Aging unites us all. And yet, older adults' distinct needs are often left out of how we design, build, and service our homes and communities. How much better could the experience of growing older be if physical environments, social supports, and digital solutions were optimized for people of all ages?

In this next offering in the virtual Temerty Medicine Talks series, join the Globe and Mail's health columnist André Picard as he speaks with U of T's Dr. Sacha Bhatia and Dr. Sharon Straus about how the spaces we inhabit impact aging, what we've learned from the COVID-19 pandemic, and opportunities to transform how (and where!) we grow older in the future.

Kindly register by March 31, 2021 to be entered into a draw to win André Picard's latest book, Neglected No More: The Urgent Need to Improve the Lives of Canada's Elders.

You will be able to access the online event via your mobile or desktop device. Log-in details will be provided before the event to all registrants.
