Older adults and caregivers living in South East Ontario are invited to participate in this one-hour online education session to learn more about how activity can reduce frailty.

By the end of this session you will:

– Appreciate the importance of sleep and rest

This series is hosted by the Centre for Studies in Aging and Health in partnership with the Canadian Frailty Network and the University Hospitals Kingston Foundation.


Participants will have the opportunity to learn from Dr. John Puxty, a Geriatrician, Associate Professor and Chair of the Division of Geriatric Medicine at Queen’s University, and Director of the Centre for Studies in Aging and Health. He has a primary interest in promoting healthy aging and wellness for older adults through his ongoing research in aging, age friendly communities, memory disorders, and knowledge mobilization strategies.
