Science cafe

I'm just getting old, that's all...

The Canadian population is aging, and overall, people are living longer. In 2011, the first wave of baby boomers turns 65 years old. This group will contribute to a doubling of the Canadian population over 65 years of age by 2025 and to a tripling in the number of centenarians by 2031.

HBI Researchers Dr. Eric Smith and Dr. Mark Poulin will be participating in a free and interactive science café on June 23 at 5:30 pm at Bottlescrew Bill's Old English Pub to discuss the link between aging and cognitive health.

This HBI Science Café will be held June 23 at 5:30 p.m. at Bottlescrew Bill's Pub in Calgary. For more information and to RSVP, email
