Members & Associates
Researchers investigating health/aging as well as health professionals with an interest in aging are encouraged to apply to the for Centre on Aging and Health (CAH) membership. Members will be a part of a growing network of aging and health researchers. In addition, the CAH can facilitate dissemination of member research to the public through our newsletter, organization of public presentations, on our website, via twitter, and through other avenues.
CAH researchers are conducting world-class gerontological research related to Canada. Many of our members work with research clusters, whose focuses include pain in old age, personhood and resilience in senior care, musculoskeletal aging and health, as well as Aboriginal health and aging.
Members may access the Centre on Aging and Health Directory of Potential Research Participants: hundreds of potential participants for all University of Regina Research Ethics Board approved studies.
Members also receive information on relevant conferences, scholarships, grants as well as the CAH Newsletter, and a variety of other aging-and-health-specific news and events, including those hosted and sponsored by the CAH.
Members will hold faculty or senior research appointments at a university or health-care facility and would have demonstrated academic excellence in gerontology or health research in general (e.g., multiple publications, substantial external grants). Associate members will be faculty members and other researchers who have a developing interest in gerontology or health research but do not meet the criteria for full membership. Professional Associates will be clinicians or other professionals who work with seniors (e.g., practicing social workers, nurses, lawyers, seniors. educators, healthcare administrators). Trainee members will be students or post-doctoral fellows in recognized post-secondary institutions. Membership of the Centre on Aging and Health will not be restricted to members of the U of R community and will be reviewed every three years. All members and associates will be expected to make significant contributions to the Centre (e.g., presentations, committee work, grant applications, clinical supervision, seeking consultantships).
I have reviewed the membership categories for the Centre on Aging and Health and I understand that the CAH Membership Committee will adjudicate my application. I have enclosed a copy of my CV.
