LIFE Institute

Dr. Linda Garcia, Founding Director of the Life Research Institute (LRI) and Margaret Gillis, founding President of the International Longevity Centre Canada (ILC) hosted a side event at the United Nations sponsored by the Canadian Medical Association (CMA), FADOQ, and Home Instead, Inc.

The event was a North-South discussion with a focus on issues of the Ninth OEWG Session by considering the availability, quality, and sustainability of long-term care and palliative care systems, and older persons’ rights to autonomy and independence. These discussions led to a strong consensus for a need for a UN Convention globally.
