MIRA member, Gina Agarwal, was interviewed in an article from TVO about a program of which she is the co-founder and principal investigator for, named the CP@Clinic. Established in Hamilton, the CP@Clinic provides a service in which paramedics hold routine drop-in sessions at social-housing buildings, at no cost to residents. While many of the services have been put on hold due to COVID restrictions, “The pandemic has highlighted the need to continue this program, because older adults in those social-housing buildings are so much more vulnerable," asserts Agarwal.
