Center for Gerontology and Healthcare Research 
Brown Bag Series

The Center for Gerontology and Healthcare Research’s 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 will be held on the 3rd, 4th and 5th Wednesday in Conference Room 636 beginning September 21st  and ending June 21st, from 11:45-12:45 PM.
