Kate Dupuis (Sheridan College)


Current Activity
Having worked with older adults in both research and clinical settings for almost 20 years, I am passionate about improving the quality of life and overall well-being of older individuals and their care partners. In my current role, my focus is on identifying the benefits of arts programming for an older population, and determining potential barriers and facilitators to participation in the arts.
