Sherbrooke, April 10, 2012
– Estrie (Eastern Townships) residents are invited to participate in the largest study on aging in Canadian history. The Canadian Longitudinal Study on Aging (CLSA) will follow approximately 50,000 Canadian men and women aged 45 to 85 over a period of at least 20 years. 

Throughout this national study, information on the biological, medical, psychological, social and economic changes concerning those participants will be gathered. Twenty thousand (20,000) residents will be responding to a phone interview conducted once every three years. The remaining 30,000 residents will visit one of the 11 data collection sites in Canada, including Sherbrooke's Research Centre on Aging located at D'Youville Hospital and Residential Centre.
