The Healthy Aging Study investigates exceptionally healthy elderly individuals we call ‘Super-Seniors,’ to gain insight into how genetics and other factors influence healthy aging.

The study now includes 700 Super-Seniors, and continues to welcome new participants from across Canada. Join Angela Brooks-Wilson as she discusses the lifestyles and genetics of these Super-Seniors.
