Dear Colleagues,
  
March's featured topic is Diversity & Inequality Considerations for 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. Claire Davies's archived presentation "Design of Devices to Increase Independence" here.

Inspired by DementiaHack 2017  we welcome you to take an overview course on Dementia . Please note that you will need Adobe Flash Player to run the course.
  
Sincerely,

CSAH team and Partners
