The Active Aging Research Team brings together scholars, community stakeholders and government to address needs, issues and opportunities of an aging society. We seek to positively impact the health of older adults through a focus on social connectedness and mobility through physical activity. Our aim is to foster connected, active lives in our community and beyond through scientific investigation and evaluation coupled with engagement of those who are in a position to implement learnings from research and evaluation to create change– community partners, government and health care practitioners.
