The Nova Scotia Centre on Aging has had many accomplishments over its 25 years making it one of the longest operating university based centres on aging in Canada. On Thursday, April 6 we celebrated our 25th anniversary and recognized the many individuals and organizations who have supported the Centre over the years. We were so pleased to have more than 150 friends (old and new) in attendance to mark this occasion.

We were honoured to have Norma Lee MacLeod, Host and Producer of CBC’s Maritime Noon emcee this the special event and excited to have Dr. Brian Goldman, best selling author and host of the CBC’s award winning radio show, “White Coat, Black Art” as our guest speaker.
