Late-Breaking Aging Research

This presentation will showcase the very latest research in aging presented by PhD students in the UMass Boston Department of Gerontology. Students will provide a sneak-peek presentation of their research that will be showcased the following week at the esteemed Gerontological Society of America conference in San Diego.

Be the first to hear about these studies and support the students in practicing their presentation skills. Several mini-presentations will be provided on topics spanning older adults and depression, cognitive performance, social security expectations, LGBT aging cultural competency trainings, frontotemporal dementia and driving status, and health care utilization.

Join us from 11:35 a.m. - 1:00 p.m.  Bring your own lunch; desserts will be provided.

The UMass Boston chapter of Sigma Phi Omega, the national honor society in gerontology, is committed to excellence in gerontology education. The presenters are all PhD students in the Department of Gerontology, a rigorous research-based program within the McCormack Graduate School of Policy and Global Studies. It is the only gerontology PhD program in the northeast United States, and the second oldest in the world.
