On September 22 in Geneva, 50 persons from everywhere around the world were designated as being part of the international leaders as part of the UN’s Decade of Healthy Ageing. This initiative with the goal of highlighting 50 actors that, with their actions in different sectors, contribute to transform the world to make it a better place to live for older adults of today and tomorrow.
Marie Beaulieu was selected as one of these leaders among 500 nominated persons. Thus the UN recognizes her exemplary 35 years career in which she was a pioneer on countering mistreatment and highlights that her commitment to ensure the transfer and application of knowledge has contributed to the constant progress in the field. Her work has lead her to, in Quebec, participate as an expert on the development of three governmental action plans aiming to counter mistreatment and the realisation of an act making it mandatory to report it.
