PhD Social Gerontology students win awards at CAG 2018

Congratulations to PhD Social Gerontology students, Rachel Weldrick and Kelsey Harvey, who won awards at the 2018 Canadian Association on Gerontology conference.

Nov 06, 2018

The Canadian Association on Gerontology (CAG) held its 47th Annual Scientific and Educational Meeting from October 18-20, 2018 in Vancouver, British Columbia.  CAG is Canada's leading multidisciplinary association for those who conduct research, work, and have an interest in the field of aging.

Rachel Weldrick, fourth year PhD Social Gerontology student, was awarded First Prize in the CIHR-Institute of Aging Student Poster Competition, Doctoral Category, for her poster, "Finding a 'Hidden' Population: How researchers identify and recruit socially isolated older people".

Kelsey Harvey, who is in her third year of the PhD Social Gerontology program, was one of the recipients of the Michael T. Sharratt Scholarship.  The award supports students in their travel to present at gerontology-relevant conferences or workshops, including but not restricted to CAG's Annual Scientific and Educational Meeting.

The Department of Health, Aging & Society is proud of their accomplishments and joins them in celebration of their success.
