Gilbrea Student Group (GSG)

Gilbrea Student Group


The Gilbrea Student Group is part of the Gilbrea Centre for Studies in Aging, here at McMaster. We are a group of interdisciplinary students, researching and studying aging from a variety of social science and science perspectives.

Our group runs monthly meetings and Journal Clubs, where we organize community events and discuss papers written on topics of aging. We participate in McMaster’s annual Walk for Alzheimer’s and have dispelled aging stereotypes through our Seniors of Canada photo-story project.

We welcome students from all Faculties and Departments on campus and look forward to the new ideas and perspectives everyone can bring to the group.
