With support from the Division of Geriatric Medicine and under the auspices of EBA training program and the Older Americans Independence Center, COAH hosts a series of Scientific Seminars on Aging, held monthly. Seminars are attended by trainees, Core Faculty, and others with interests in aging. The broad goal of the Seminars on Aging 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.
Date/Time: Mondays at 3:30pm, first of the month, unless otherwise noted.
Sponsorship: The 2014-2015 Seminar Series is primarly sponsored by the The Matthew Tayback Memorial Fund.
