Celebrating Dan Levitt: Advocate in British Columbia
British Columbia Health Minister Adrian Dix announces the appointment of Dan Levitt as the province’s new senior advocate. He is an adjunct professor of gerontology at Simon Fraser University and the head of a non-profit long-term care home.
Levitt served on the Global Ageing Network and recently spoke at the 2023 Global Ageing Conference in Glasgow.
He shared the importance of “rethinking aging” as the demographics shift in our population, and will begin his new role with traveling to meet older adults in rural and urban areas to listen to their concerns and produce a report.
We are excited to share his news and applaud him on this honor!
