St. Thomas University News Release
October 23, 2003
Forum on Gerontology
WHY: Come and hear about the exciting studies by the Gerontology faculty of St. Thomas University. These studies challenge the current stereotypes of aging that makes some believe that having a growing number of older people in Canada – represents a crisis! This forum is an opportunity for everyone to hear about the latest research in the field.
HOW: In talks that range from topics on aging and wisdom to men's experiences as widowers to older adults' hidden resistance to challenges to their dignity, the presenters will bring their findings and their passions to the deliberations of the day. Each presenter will speak for about 30 minutes, followed by questions.
