The RUISSS McGill Centre of Excellence on Longevity was created at the end of 2012 on the impulse of the Ministry of Health and Social Services to offer concrete support to clinicians and health organizations working in the fields of aging and chronic disease in the McGill University’s Réseau Universitaire Intégré de Santé et Services sociaux (RUISSS).
The Centre of Excellence on Longevity is a Non-Profit Organization established with the Registraire des Entreprises du Québec.
