Bulot's Bio

Bulot earned both his master's and doctoral degrees in gerontology at UMass Boston's John W. McCormack Graduate School of Policy and Global Studies.  His academic training included a major emphasis in public policy, statistics, and research methods.

He has taught at the University of Louisiana at Monroe, the state's only gerontology master’s program, which was recognized nationally as the first long-term care accredited graduate program in the United States.  He was also employed for five years as director of the Institute of Gerontology and two years as the department head of gerontology, sociology and political science.

Bulot served as director of the Louisiana Governor’s Office of Elderly Affairs before beginning his current position as director of Georgia Department of Human Services, Division of Aging Services where he administers a statewide system of services for senior citizens, their families, and caregivers.
