MRU launches Centre for Health and Innovation in Aging


Mount Royal University has launched the Centre for Health and Innovation in Aging. The centre will bring aging adults, faculty, students, innovators, care providers, and industry partners together to focus on solving aging-related challenges. The centre will use innovation, research, education, and community engagement to inform approaches to healthcare delivery and ensure that aging adults can experience later life as a period of vitality. Students will have the opportunity to experience new career paths through the centre, while researchers will be able to study healthy aging and connect with members of the industry and community. “By offering an interdisciplinary platform for research collaboration, education, and community outreach focused on aging and health innovation, we hope the centre will become a catalyst for holistic understanding and transformative solutions,” said MRU Associate Professor Jocelyn Rempel.
