What People Are Saying About SoAR

 It was so exciting and energising for me to hear about all the strong student research being conducted focused on aging and later life here at the University of Waterloo. All the students I talked to at the forum spoke about how pleased they were to be involved and how much they appreciated the opportunity to meet other students and faculty from across campus interested in aging.

 SoAR brought people together from across the University of Waterloo to discuss aging. Very interesting and very enjoyable!"

I was welcomed to invite one of the older adults from a research project with me who was living with young onset dementia; through this symposium we were given the opportunity to give a presentation together, and co-present our poster during the poster session. This was a rewarding experience for both him, and myself.

SoAR has proven itself as an event that not only showcases current aging research at the University of Waterloo, but also one that heightens awareness on potential areas for future research, and connects those with similar interests in service and teaching. Attendees saw this event as an opportunity to bring together diverse groups from across the University of Waterloo who are passionate and dedicated about aging research.

We look forward to continuing to engage with these communities, learning from one another and maximizing on our abilities and experiences to improve the ways in which knowledge is created and shared.
