Healthy Aging Lecture: ‘Leaving No One Behind?’ Winners and Losers in Global Action on Aging

The School of Kinesiology presents a Killam lecture series on Healthy Aging From Cells to Societies. It is our hope that through this series of five lectures, our audiences will emerge with a greater appreciation for the many different ways to think about what promotes or hinders healthy and successful aging. Our goal is to support a Canadian culture that values science and discovery to support decisions – at both individual and policy levels.

Dr. Norah Keating, Director of Global Social Issues on Aging, International Association of Gerontology and Geriatrics (IAGG), is the second presenter in the Healthy Aging series.

She is a family gerontologist who is interested in issues faced by older adults and their families. As Director of IAGG’s Global Social Initiative on Aging, her research and capacity-building focuses on families and aging, liveability of older adults, and care. She is engaged in international research on liveability of communities for older adults in Australia, Canada and South Africa. As well, she is involved in a program of research on economic, health and social costs of care in Canada and China. Dr. Keating has worked to advise the World Health Organization  on its ‘World Report on Ageing and Health’ in her role as expert on the environments of older adults.
