Dr Kate Dupuis



Kate is the Schlegel Innovation Leader in Arts and Aging at Sheridan College in Oakville, and is affiliated with the Schlegel-UWaterloo Research Institute for Aging in Waterloo, Ontario. Kate is a registered Clinical Neuropsychologist and a researcher whose work lies at the intersection of arts, health, and aging. In her research, Kate seeks to identify both the potential personal and systemic barriers to participation in the arts, how we can facilitate arts engagement in older adults, and what being “creative” or “artistic” mean to us as we age. Kate strives to understand how the arts can benefit all domains of health and well-being, including cognitive, physical, emotional and social well-being, and how we can encourage and foster creativity and innovation across the lifespan. At Sheridan College, Kate is a professor in the Social Service Worker: Gerontology program in the Faculty of Applied Health and Community Studies.
