The Canadian Frailty Network (CFN) is looking to fund high-quality research, knowledge translation and implementation of innovation in practice studies on healthy aging carried out in the Kingston, Frontenac, Lennox & Addington (KFL&A) region. This competition is designed to support ancillary studies on older adults aged 65y+ residing in the KFL&A region who are participants in CFN’s AVOID Frailty Program via the KFL&A Centre for Healthy Aging (https://healthyagingcentres.ca). AVOID Frailty is a community-driven primary prevention intervention that aims to enable uptake and maintenance of healthy behaviours for older adults.
