Darla Fortune celebrates new FRQSC funding

May 24, 2023

Darla Fortune, an associate professor in the Department of Applied Human Sciences, is celebrating new funding related to her work on aging populations in Quebec.

The Fonds de recherche de société et culture du Québec (FRQSC) has awarded Fortune over $200,000 to advance her project, Practices in well-treating in centers for the elderly and the promotion of active aging.

“This project builds on my research related to the relationship between community spaces and belonging,” says Fortune.

“In recent work, I have explored how older adults who are active members of a senior centre negotiate experiences of belonging alongside age-related life transitions. Receiving FRQSC funding will help to extend this work by identifying leading  treatment practices for senior centres that best support active aging and experiences of belonging.”

In total, Fortune will receive $214,186  over the next four years to advance her work on this topic.
