Join us this October in Moncton, NB at the Delta Beausejour for our fifth Annual Conference: Exploring the Future of Technology and Aging. AGE-WELL2019 will be held just prior to the Canadian Association on Gerontology Annual Scientific and Educational Meeting.

AGE-WELL2019 will look into the future to see where the technology and aging sector is headed in coming decades, and showcase how AGE-WELL is pushing the boundaries of research and innovation. Engaging demonstrations and presentations from across the AGE-WELL network will spotlight real-world solutions to support healthy aging. It’s a major opportunity for knowledge exchange, networking and collaboration among AGE-WELL stakeholders. Open to the public, AGE-WELL2019 is the place to be for anyone with an interest in technology and aging.
