The Research & Innovation in Aging Forum (RIAF) is hosted by the Centre in Studies in Aging & Health and brings together researchers, clinicians and others to discuss topics related to research about and with older adults.
The forum is a platform for sharing research ideas, research in progress and completed projects with the goal to augment communication networks, have opportunities for discussion and feedback and to celebrate each other’s’ work.
Forum meetings currently occur about 6 times per year and are open to all interested to attend. The Forum was originally developed in 2011/12 and continues to strive for knowledge mobilization and productive partnerships for research in aging across our SE LHIN.
