The Canadian Longitudinal Study on Aging has achieved numerous milestones in the past year. Recruitment and baseline data collection for more than 50,000 participants has been completed. Versions 1.0 and 2.0 of the Tracking data are currently available for use by the research community. The Canadian Institutes of Health Research has awarded $41.6 million in funding to continue the study for the next five years, and the first follow-up wave of data collection has begun.

Join Dr. Susan Kirkland, CLSA co-principal investigator and professor in the Departments of Community Health & Epidemiology and Medicine at Dalhousie University in Halifax, for an update on the progress of the CLSA, including descriptive statistics of study participants at baseline, how the second wave of data collection is being rolled out, future availability of Comprehensive data and biospecimens, and how CLSA data can be used to inform a wide range of research projects.
