May 16, 2017
Tuesday, 10:30 a.m. - 12:00
The Raising the Profile Project (RPP) is identifying the importance of community-based seniors' services and making recommendations about innovative ways to ensure the long term capacity of the sector to meet the rising and increasingly complex needs of seniors in BC now and in the future.

Guest Speaker, Marcy Cohen, has been involved in social justice issues in both a professional capacity and as a volunteer.  She has worked on issues related to home and community care restructuring, health system innovation, gender equality, and on policies to improve access to government services for disadvantaged populations.  She has become increasingly interested in health prevention and promotion strategies that support seniors' health and independence.

PRESENTATION MATERIALS will be posted prior to the event.
