January 29, 2019 – Life expectancy in Canada has increased steadily over the past 150 years, according to Statistics Canada. Today, the average Canadian can expect to live well into his or her 80s thanks to huge advances in public health and awareness. But how do longer lifespans change the way we live as individuals and as a society?
To explore that question and more, MIRA and McMaster Innovation Park (MIP) are partnering for a ‘Science in the Park’ lecture that will feature Dr. Parminder Raina, scientific director of MIRA, principal investigator for the Canadian Longitudinal Study on Aging and Canada Research Chair in Geroscience.
This public presentation is free and will be held on Tuesday, February 5 at 7 p.m. at the McMaster Innovation Park (175 Longwood Road South).
