The longer I live the more beautiful life becomes.
-Frank Lloyd Wright
Even in something as natural as aging, advancements in research and innovation can make the process smoother, improving the quality of life for older adults. In its 2013 Strategic Plan, the University of Waterloo identified an opportunity to become a leader in aging research. In 2014, the Network for Aging Research (NAR) was created to expand the field of aging research and support aging-focused researchers.
The development of the NAR, as identified by the University’s Vice-President Academic & Provost, was a strategic and essential step toward advancing aging research. The NAR acts as a networking tool for aging-focused researchers, and fosters collaborative aging research across the university.
The Network for Aging Research (NAR) is pleased to announce the University of Waterloo’s Conference on Aging, COVID-19 and the Adoption of Health Technology on March 24-25, 2021 from 1-5 p.m. each day.
The Network for Aging Research has released a call for research proposals related to COVID-19 & older adults.
After carefully considering the evolving situation with COVID-19, and recent travel restrictions that affect our keynote speaker, we have decided to postpone our William F. Forbes Lecture event scheduled for April 9, 2020.
