Since its foundation in 2013, the Geriatric Education and Research in Aging Sciences (GERAS Centre) has emerged as an international leader in fractures, frailty, and dementia research.
We are at the forefront of several innovative research initiatives focused on maximizing the resilience of vulnerable older adults. With our rapidly aging population, and with more people living with chronic disease, our work has never been more important. We have been working hard towards our goal to enable people to age with dignity and independence.
The Centre, based out of St. Peter’s Hospital (SPH) in Hamilton, aims to advance health care through education and research. This aim is operationalized by linking research, practice, and education to realize point-of-care improvements for seniors.
Strong partnerships with the St. Peter’s Centre for Healthy Aging, the Health TAPESTRY primary care initiative, Osteoporosis Canada, Medical Pharmacies Group Ltd., and many others support the success of the GERAS Centre’s activities.
