The Canadian Longitudinal Study on Aging (CLSA) is a large, national long-term study seeking to understand how different factors have an impact on both maintaining health and in the development of disease and disability as people age. The CLSA collects information on changing biological, medical, psychological, social, lifestyle, and economic aspects of people’s lives.
The CLSA team is a national collaboration involving more than 160 researchers from 26 universities across Canada. It includes approximately 50,000 Canadians recruited between 2010 and 2015 and the study will follow them for at least 20 years with the aim to find ways to help us live long, live well and understand why some people age healthy while others do not.
Cubicle Fugitive is currently working with the CLSA on the design and development of a new website.
