Say hello to Leap, the Centre for Aging + Brain Health Innovation (CABHI)’s virtual community for older adults & caregivers whose life experiences help inform aging & brain health innovations. It’s a community where we share, learn, collaborate, and advise on solutions being developed to make aging better.

Join us from September 19 to 23 as we host a Virtual Open House. Register as a Leap member to take full advantage of our Open House Week; a time when we curate the best of Leap, giving you a chance to explore, participate, and get to know how to use Leap and engage with the community.

Open House Week features a jampacked series of free virtual events that will educate, inspire, and connect lifelong learners who are interested in influencing the latest aging and brain health innovations. Register to become a Leap member (it’s free) so you can sign up for these exciting events.
