AGE-WELL Summer Institute

Summer Institute_the Winning Team_Mouvable)20170708_132409Every summer, we are pleased to offer an exciting and innovative week-long training event to AGE-WELL trainees across Canada.

Shediac, New Brunswick was the picturesque setting for the 2nd AGE-WELL EPIC Summer Institute, held on July 4-8, 2017.

Eighteen highly qualified personnel (HQP) from across Canada participated in the week of workshops, lectures and activities on participatory, user-centred design.

This year’s theme was Co-Creating Possibilities: Physical Fitness to Avoid Frailty. Trainees worked closely with expert mentors and developed solutions to facilitate physical fitness and healthy aging to avoid frailty.

Teams worked tirelessly to define a problem, develop a solution, address project elements from prototyping to commercialization, and plan a short pitch presentation.
