The Seniors Health Knowledge Network (SHKN) and Ontario Interdisciplinary Council for Aging and Health (OICAH) are jointly seeking to enhance knowledge and awareness about the wide scope of research, education and innovation in aging in Ontario. We propose to do this by creating a new online directory of individuals and groups engaged in promoting excellence in research, education, and innovation about aging.

At the Academy, connecting you to a welcoming and dynamic community of peers is one of our principal goals and core member benefits. Some of the best ways for you to get connected. We are pleased to announce the launch of our first general audiology community, a new collaboration platform that includes a document posting area, listserv capabilities, discussion forums, and social media integration. Visit the community, login, and start collaborating with your colleagues!
