Centre for Education and Research on Aging

Centre for Education and Research on Aging

The Centre for Education and Research on Aging (CERA) was launched at UFV in 2006 with the goal of facilitating a collaborative process between educators, researchers, practitioners, students, older people and caregivers in the Fraser Valley to learn more about the issues surrounding the aging process.

The centre promotes gerontological research and educational programs at UFV and in senior communities in the Fraser Valley. It serves as a source of information about aging for UFV students and the broader community.

CERA Spotlight

CERA student research assistant, Rosaley Klassen, presented at UFV's Student Research Day 2022. The focus of her research is Social connections: Assisted living seniors' experiences during COVID-19.

“In CERA, I had the wonderful opportunity to work with Dr. Lesley Jessiman. I’d always had an interest on the social aspects of aging. I remember being in Lesley’s classroom (Adulthood and Aging) and realizing I could do research on this. It was almost a perfect fit.”
