Join us for EPIC presentations from AGE-WELL and EPIC-AT students, postdoctoral fellows, research staff, early career researchers (ECRs) and their stakeholders as they share their research in the “Staying Connected” Challenge Area.
The “Staying Connected” Challenge Area focuses on using technology to encourage social participation by supporting older adults and caregivers to stay engaged at home, work, and in the community.
