Part of our mandate is to ensure the public and university community are aware of important aging and health research. One of the best ways to disseminate that information is through public lectures and events. Each year, we sponsor, organize, and host a range of events such as our annual Distinguished Lecture as well as an annual Brain Awareness Week event. Check here for upcoming CAH events.
