The CRPD hosts a monthly get together for graduate students and post-doctoral researchers to explore ideas and raise new questions about aging and dementia. These are lively wide-ranging conversations about what can be done through research, practice, and community partnerships to support personhood and promote social citizenship. The Exchange is held at the CRPD (Room 322, 2080 West Mall) on the last Friday of every month from 4-5:30 pm.
CRPD COLLOQUIA – MAY 23 & June 26
We have two colloquia coming up that are presenting research on different ways of supporting people with dementia who are living in the community. On May 23, Christine FitzGerald (our second visiting scholar from Ireland) will be presenting her research on psychosocial interventions, and on June 26, Riley Malvern from SFU will be presenting her work on the neighbourhood built environment. These events are free and all are welcome – it is a chance for informal dialogue between researchers, service providers, family members, persons with dementia, and policy makers. We hope you’ll join us!
