Dryden Rotarian, Brian Kenny is part of a study at McMaster University on the effects of aging. 
 
Officially, the McMaster study is known as the Canadian Longitudinal Study on Aging (CLSA). It is a national study that will follow 50,000 Canadians, aged 45 to 85, over 20 years. Its aim is to find ways to improve the health of Canadians by better understanding the processes and dimensions of aging.
 
Over the past five years, the CLSA research team has implemented the study and completed recruitment. All the participants have now completed baseline assessments including telephone interviews, face-to-face interviews, as well as visits to specially designed data collection sites.
 
The CLSA will collect information on the changing biological, medical, psychological, social, lifestyle and economic aspects of people’s lives. These factors will be studied to understand how, individually and in combination, they have an impact in both maintaining health and in the development of disease and disability as people age.
 
The study involves physical testing every three years to see how things have changed.
