Brenda Strafford Centre on Aging
A consolidated listing of the University's aging-focused researchers reaffirms the University's institutional commitment to improving the health and well-being of older adults and to better serve our aging population. Together, these efforts, along with the many initiatives being led by the Centre, have positioned the University of Calgary to be recognized as an Age-Friendly University.
Commemorating Mrs. P. June Rock

To reflect June's valuable contributions and achievements, the Rock family and the Centre on Aging have established an endowed scholarship to support professional development for mature graduate students.
