Sustainable Life: Community Care for an Aging Population
Originally aired on October 27
Re-release November 30
Authors and experts in candid, live conversation reflect on the topics that matter most during this unprecedented time. Following the disturbing events that took place in long-term care homes across Canada during the COVID-19 pandemic, new policies, strategies and considerations are essential for the future of elder care. Moderated by medical anthropologist Lenore Manderson, event panelists Pat Armstrong, Sarah Lamb and Aalyia Feroz Ali Sadruddin will take part in this discussion on addressing inequities in the health of an aging population. Panelists will also share their diverse and intercontinental research into the anthropology of health and aging, how various cultures and diaspora traverse the aging process, the idea of “successful aging” as a contemporary obsession, and the economics of aging.
Tune in each day of the Festival to hear new speakers in critical conversation about the topics shaping today’s world.
