Welcome to SPA 2023!
The 2023 CIHR Institute of Aging Summer Program in Aging (SPA) is being hosted by the Nova Scotia Centre on Aging at Mount Saint Vincent University. SPA 2023 will bring together more than 40 graduate students and post-doctoral fellows for an immersive 4+ day advanced learning experience that crosses disciplines, sectors, institutions and geography. The Theme for SPA 2023 is Longer-living older adults: Multidisciplinary approaches to a growing area of research on aging (click here for description and objectives) and the program is being planned to be held in person in Nova Scotia at White Point Beach Resort with program planning being led a multi-disciplinary planning group.
