SHARE Network

About the SHARE Network

What is the Gilbrea Centre?  The Gilbrea Centre for Studies in Aging is an interdisciplinary hub of research, teaching, and outreach hosted in the Faculty of Social Sciences at McMaster University.  In collaboration with researchers, students, and those in the community, the mission of the Centre is to produce and communicate socially relevant knowledge which helps to broaden understandings of aging through research, community partnerships and knowledge exchange.

What is SHARE?  The SHARE Group is a volunteer network for older adults 55+ developed by the Gilbrea Centre. SHARE provides members the opportunity to meet, connect, socialize, and engage in discussions and workshop initiatives. Members are provided resources and opportunities to participate in research and voluntary opportunities such as awareness raising and public engagement that relates to the aging studies work that we do at the Gilbrea Centre.
