In September, 2022, CORE Canada will be launching a series of monthly 90-minute sessions focused on Mobilizing to Promote Health and Well-Being for Older Adults. This health promotion series will build on the recent webinars offered by The National Collaborating Centre for Determinants of Health (NCCDH) and Health Promotion Canada (HPC) that explored public health action on health equity for an aging population and was based on content from the book “Promoting the Health of Older Canadians – The Canadian Experience”.
The new series will pick up on the webinar and book topics in an effort to mobilize action on various issues by focusing on effective models and the policies, practices, partnerships, and networks that support them. Through interviews and discussions with practitioners, researchers, and policy-makers, each session will explore a topic and the key issues and challenges related to it, and examine some strategies and programs that have been successful in addressing the problems. In addition to Q&A, participants will have the opportunity to more deeply probe and engage in the topic by accessing related resources and tools, and by joining a discussion group on CORE Canada.
The first three sessions, scheduled for the last Thursday of the month at 10 - 11:30 AM PDT will look at:
- September 29th: Re-orienting Health and Social Services for Older Adults: Provincial Strategies for Community-Based Seniors Services **note: this session will begin at 9:30AM PDT**
- October 27th: Age-friendly Communities- A Key Strategy in Promoting the Well-being of Older Adults
- January 26th: Housing and Living Arrangement Options for Older Adults: At home. In community
**Sessions will have French translation and closed caption available.
