Johns Hopkins Center on Aging and Health
Scientific Seminar Series

With support from The Matthew Tayback Memorial Fund in the Division of Geriatric Medicine and under the auspices of EBA training program and the Older Americans Independence Center, the Center on Aging and Health (COAH) hosts a monthly Scientific Seminar Series. Seminars are attended by faculty, fellows, trainees, staff, and others with interests in aging from across the university. The broad goal of the COAH Scientific Seminar Series is to stimulate interdisciplinary research investigating the health concerns for an aging society, particularly focused on opportunities for prevention, through engaging leading experts in the discussion of research agendas and findings pertaining to the field. Past seminar speakers include James F. Fries, MD, Bruce McEwen, PhD, and James W. Vaupel, PhD among many other distinguished speakers.
