Presented by the Irving K. Barber Learning Centre and Woodward Library, the Health Information Series is an ongoing public lecture series that take place in the Lower Mainland community.  Who is a geriatrician? Someone who is dedicated to the health and well-being of our nation’s elders; someone who is dedicated to medically complex patient care involving interacting medical, neurological, psychiatric and social problems; someone who is on the front lines in coping with the changes associated with the graying of our society…and more!   Dr. Wong is Clinical Professsor in the Division of Geriatric Medicine of the Department of Medicine, and is also President of the Canadian Geriatrics Society (CGS) — the first British Columbian to lead the organization in 20 years. As an expert on aging and geriatrics support, please join us as Dr. Roger Wong will bring a lively presentation and discussion to the community of Richmond, BC at the Brighouse Branch Library of the Richmond Public Library.
