HEALTHY AND SUCCESSFUL AGING
Supporting collaboration among researchers on both campuses of UBC and community partners, this group of researchers are advancing existing programs of research that address the social, psychological, physiological and environmental domains of aging. Maintaining high levels of functioning and resilience to challenges is a central goal of healthy and successful aging and the shared research pursuit of this group. Aging is profoundly heterogeneous and as such research activities will engage diverse adult populations (e.g., elite functionally fit to frail, rural and urban, men and women) as well as those living with chronic illness in order to inform tailored interventions and approaches that strengthen resilience, support self-management, and build social support for men and women’s healthy and successful aging.
