Dear Colleagues,
  
July's featured topic is Infection in Older Adults. We have recently added a number of new resources to sagelink.ca.    
 
If you were not able to join our last Research & Innovation in Aging Forum last month, you can view Dr. Kevin Woo's archived presentation here.  We look forward to updating you on the fall line up.

We are pleased to share an open access overview course on sageducation.ca. This month we welcome you to take an overview course on Delirium in the Older Adult.  Please note that you will need Adobe Flash Player to run the course.
  
Sincerely,

CSAH team and Partners
