Wednesday Lunch Hour - Emerging Scholars in the ENGOAL Project: Researching Health and Aging by Older Adults

Wednesday, April 11, 2018
Noon - 12:50 pm
Genrich-Rusling Room, LeChase 215

Engaging Older Adult Learners as Health Researchers (ENGOAL) is an education and training program on health research methods and geriatric health research for older adults. Eleven older adults from Rochester, NY, joined the program in October 2017. Over the last six months they have discovered the joy of learning and sharing their knowledge with their families and communities. They have worked on 3 mini-research proposals and will present their work and share their ideas. Please join us in supporting these emerging researchers!!
Our ENGOAL participants are supported by our leadership team: Silvia Sörensen & Joyce Duckles (Warner School of Education & Human Development), Sandhya Seshadri & Craig Sellers (School of Nursing), Phyllis Jackson (Common Ground Health), Doreen Young (Beechwood Greenhouse Collaborative), & George Moses (Executive Director, NEAD). This program has been funded by Eugene Washington Engagement Awards Program from the Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI).

A light lunch will be served. Food will be available at 11:45 pm. The program will begin promptly at noon.
