Centre on Aging and Health

Founded in 2002, the CAH has been facilitating health research and training. The CAH developed and coordinates an M.A./M.Sc. Program in Gerontology: the only interdisciplinary graduate gerontology degree program of its kind on the prairies. The program began in 2005 and is based on a partnership of three faculties: Arts, Social Work, and Kinesiology and Health Studies.

In addition, contributions to the development of a gerontology research network have been very successful in obtaining research funding; CAH members have been recipients of a variety of prestigious honours and awards for research, teaching, public service, and other important areas.

The CAH is important from a provincial and national standpoint and has developed partnerships with health regions in Saskatchewan as well as provincial and local health organizations.

Potential participants must be suffering from chronic pain, which is pain lasting for more than 3 months.
