McGill Health Fair



A very Special Thank you to all those that participated this weekend at “Le Salon Carrefour 50ans +” on Friday, April 22, Saturday, April 23 and Sunday April 24, 2016 from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm at Place Bonaventure. This successful event had approximately 140 kiosques where participants were able to get information from various health support groups, government services, financial services, funeral services, residences, real estate, travel, notaries, recreation activities, local Quebec products/arts & crafts and tips on Healthy Living & Aging.  There were also 30 different conferences given in the last three days on various topics. This event gathered a large number of people in the heart of downtown Montreal and because of its targeted age group (50+) – we managed to reach a specific population, which presented a great opportunity to introduce "The McGill University Research Centre for Studies in Aging".   We handed out approximately 550 packages of information and achieved two main goals with this event: (1). Increased Centre’s visibility and (2). Reached new audiences.
