Public Lecture Series

The Edwin S.H. Leong Centre for Healthy Aging is proud to partner with the UBC School of Kinesiology on a public lecture series. The series features distinguished speakers who present on broad topics in current aging research to share findings with the community. Our hope is that by sharing evidence and enabling dialogue we will help people live longer, happier lives. These events can be viewed in person or over Zoom. Scroll through our events calendar to find upcoming public lectures.

This public lecture series originally began three years ago when Dr. Eli Puterman, an Associate Professor in the School of Kinesiology, was awarded a Killam Connection Award. After a hiatus due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are grateful to have the opportunity to co-sponsor this initiative.

If you have suggestions for topics or speakers please email our Research Director, Dr. Kim Schmidt, at
