Dear CSAH Community,
  
May's spotlight topic is Diabetes. We have recently added a number of new resources about Diabetes to sagelink.ca.  In this issue, you will also find resources related to nutrition, osteoporosis, comorbidities and special considerations for Aboriginal persons.

Our next Research & Innovation in Aging Forum will be held on May 17th from 4-5PM at the Learning & Leadership Centre at Providence Care's Mental Health Services site, 752 King St W, Kingston Ontario.  Dr. Michael Green will be discussing "Diabetes Within Ontario's First Nations Peoples". Those unable to attend in person may register to join via webinar by clicking here. The webinar recording and pdf of the presentation will also be made available online after the event.

Join Hospice Kingston for Die-Alogues; What's on your Bucket List? Live, Love and Die-Alogue. This event held on Wed. June 8th from 6:30-8:30 pm at Queen's University will feature a meet and greet and a presentation by Dr. John Puxty. Click here for registration information.

The Regional Geriatrics Programs of Ontario's Annual Education Day 2016  will be taking place on Thursday, June 9th at the Holiday Inn Toronto- Yorkdale. This year's theme is "Rethinking Frailty" and will feature our Director Dr. John Puxty as the keynote speaker.  

We are pleased to share an open access overview course on sageducation.ca. A different overview will be featured each month. This month we welcome you to take an overview course on Falls and Fall Prevention . Please note that you will need Adobe Flash Player to run the course.

If you are involved with or know of a research project related to aging or the care of older adults, we would like the opportunity to share that information with our audience. Please contact info@sagelink.ca with the details you would like to share.
  
Sincerely,

CSAH team
