About the 4th Canadian HIV & Aging Symposium (attend in person or 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. The full agenda is currently being finalized and will be posted soon!
About the Policy Dialogue (online only)
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.
