About the 4th Canadian HIV & Aging Symposium (attend online)
The 4th Canadian HIV & Aging Symposium, aptly titled: HIV and Aging WELL: WE Live & Learn Together, is co-hosted by Realize and the CIHR Canadian HIV Trials Network (CTN) Clinical Care Management Core. This event will facilitate information exchange and feature a diverse group of esteemed speakers and panelists, each with a unique perspective on the intersection of HIV and aging, including:
- Older adults and people aging with HIV
- Clinical, community-based and academic researchers
- Healthcare providers
- Policy change advocates
Themes include: optimizing quality of life, preventing comorbidity, future care and support, and optimizing sexuality.
About the Policy Dialogue (online)
The third day of the symposium will feature a policy dialogue exploring ageism in the HIV/HCV/STBBI response in Canada. We will review the work Realize is doing to address this important issue and hear from community members and frontline staff who deliver aging care and/or STBBI prevention, care, treatment and support services. Participants will increase their knowledge of existing public health and aging policies and establish and strengthen community connections.
Simultaneous English/French interpretation and Communication Access Realtime Translation (CART) in English and French will be provided for both the symposium and the policy dialogue.
