April 28, 2019
Dear students and residents/fellows participants, congratulations on being one of 37 trainees from across Canada and abroad selected to attend SPA 2019.
This year, the CIHR Institute of Aging (IA) has partnered with the Quebec Network for Research on Aging to host an innovative five-day training program that will focus on Geroscience.
There are three main tasks to complete aside from reviewing the website.
Moreover, to participate to a global environmental effort, no paper document will be provided for the SPA. All documents will be available from the web. Therefore, it is mandatory that you bring your own laptop. Free Wi-Fi will be available.
SPA 2019 will be a casual affair, please plan to dress comfortably. There will be time for visiting the Nordic Spa, open daily from 7 am to 11 pm, and includes two outdoor pools, spas, a polar bath, a dry sauna, a steam bath, a Nordic shower and a steam room https://www.esterel.com. So do not forget your bathing suits if you want to enjoy the Spa after a long day of learning and writing and for the Dragon Boat Racing (with instructors). For the final dinner on Thursday evening, the dress code will be business casual. Flip flop sandals, running shoes, shorts, T-shirts, caps will not be permitted. Finally, I suggest to check weather forecasts as the last week of May is approaching https://www.accuweather.com. It should be around 21°C during the day and 10 °C during the night, but we never know!
We look forward to meet you on May 26. If you have any questions, concerns or comments please feel free to contact Elizabeth Iacono at firstname.lastname@example.org, coordinator of the Quebec Network for Research on Aging.
