Dr Carole Estabrooks named Member of the Order of Canada


Dr Carole Estabrooks, Principal Inviestigator and Scientific Director of TREC, was named Member of the Order of Canada by Governor-General David Johnston for her work in the areas of knowledge translation and care of older adults. Established in 1967, the Order of Canada is one of the highest civilian honours in Canada, that recognizes a lifetime of outstanding achievement and dedication of service to the nation. Please join us in congratulating Carole for this prestigious distinction!



TREC was delighted to welcome its stakeholders to its Annual General Meeting on June 13-14, 2016 in Edmonton. It was a event full of energy with many lively discussions. The AGM attendees listened to an engaging and thought provoking presentation by Dr Michael Rachlis on better care for Canada's aging population. Dr Rachlis' presentation sought to ease our anxieties about the future of healthcare delivery for our ageing populations by presenting some thoughtful solutions.

We want to say a sincere thank you to all the decision makers, researchers, and associates who attended, and participated, and to our staff who worked tirelessly to ensure the event was a success.

The voices, and now faces, of VOICES

VOICES Committee meeting June 13, 2016.

VOICES stands for Voices of Individuals and Family and Friend Caregivers Educating Us. But we won't ask you to remember that.

The VOICES group are individuals with dementia and family or friend caregivers of individuals in long term care. The committee advises TREC to ensure that individuals most impacted by research outcomes have an ongoing role and voice in the research program. The VOICES committee met face-to-face for the first time on June 13, 2016.
