Brown Bag Series

The Center for Gerontology and Healthcare Brown Bag Series provides an opportunity for Gerontology faculty and post-doctoral fellows as well as other researchers focusing on aging issues and/or long-term care to share their completed and ongoing research with colleagues.  The series also enables researchers to brainstorm regarding study issues and questions.  Thus, presentations of planned and ongoing research as well as completed research are encouraged. 

All Brown Bag presentations are held on Wednesdays at Noon in Conference Room 636.  To sign up for a presentation, please contact or phone 401 863 3604.
