To All 302 Research Participants: Thank You!

Sought by the flu vaccination clinic, Sherbrooke's population massively says "yes" to research. More than 302 people have given their written consent to the recruitment centre of the Research Centre on Aging (CdRV) to voluntarily participate in research studies.

Most found out about the research projects through the Research Centre's Encrâge Journal while waiting to get their flu shots at the vaccination clinic held at the Centre de foire de Sherbrooke. The studies cover a wide number of aspects of aging (physical activity, diabetes, memory disorders, nutrition, brain functioning, psycho-social issues, etc.).

5,000 copies

Published yearly, the Encrâge Journal introduces the public to a variety of ongoing research projects led by 47 full-time researchers and 20 associate researchers. More than 5,000 copies of Encrâge are published and distributed throughout the community through subscription. The 2015 edition is now online.

"We wish to thank the workers at the vaccination clinic under the supervision of Isabelle Desbiens, the administrative program manager with the Department of Programs and Services for Adults at the Sherbrooke-based facilities of the CIUSSS de l’Estrie – CHUS," said Véronique Boutier, an executive scientific assistant at the CdRV. "A special thanks to Chantale Bisson and to the students at the Research Centre on Aging for being permanently available at the Centre de foires de Sherbrooke. They are: Valérie St-Pierre, Taha Amamou, Camille Vandenberghe, Inès Boukabous, and Lucie Bouvrette."
