  • Aurora Cultural Centre


Dr Lynn McDonald

Dr. McDonald is a professor in the Faculty of Social Work and Director of the Institute for Human Development, Life Course and Aging at the University of Toronto.  Dr. McDonald's research interests include work and retirement, violence against women and older adults, and the effects of poverty, as well as homelessness and ethnicity, on aging. She has been interviewed and featured on radio and television, as well as in the University of Toronto's EDGE magazine in an article on the challenge of the aging boom (Fall 2011, Vol 13, NO.2).


Dimensions of Aging: Realities, Intervention, Prevention

Included will be an overview of the health and wealth of older Canadians and how ageism affects the way older adults see themselves and how others see older people.  Because of ageism older adults are often not treated as full citizens. A new model of citizenship based on age proofing might help end ageist issues.
