Program Development Advisory Council

The Program Development Advisory Council (PDAC) comprises established scientific leaders from the University of British Columbia involved in fields related to healthy aging.

The PDAC operates as a consultation council advising the Dean of the UBC Faculty of Medicine and the Edwin S.H. Leong UBC Chair in Healthy Aging — a UBC President’s Excellence Chair. The PDAC will provide strategic advice, guidance, and connections to support the successful launch and development of the program. Once the inaugural chair holder is in place, the PDAC will serve as a scientific sounding board to provide expertise and perspective to help ensure that the Program remains true to Dr. Leong’s vision.


The current members of the PDAC are:
