Prior to the pandemic, our health system was not effectively serving older adults with complex needs and their caregivers. We cannot simply return to the status quo; we must do better. 2021 Conference – Transforming Care: Supporting Older Adults Post-COVID in Ontario
The International Association for the Scientific Study of Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities (IASSIDD) Special Interest Research Group and Surrey Place are hosting 20/20 & Beyond, a two-day conference that will raise awareness, increase knowledge and connect policy and practice to improve the health of individuals with IDD.
The aim of the event is to bring together the health sector, finanical industry, government officials, and the Ryerson community for a full day focused on personal financial security, healthy aging, and discussion on public system sustainability.
June 27-28, 2020 at Victoria College, University of Toronto. Participants are encouraged to consider both terms broadly: “aging” may encompass work that addresses how age matters throughout the life course (not only in old age), and “social justice” may address different aspects of justice, at scales ranging from the interpersonal to the global, and including both basic social science and cross disciplinary research and intervention science.
June 17, 2020 from 12-1PM EST. Join presenters, Lynn Martin of Lakehead University and Hélène Ouellette-Kuntz, Queen’s University as they discuss their research to date on effective collaboration and partnerships to support frail adults with intellectual developmental disabilities in the community.
