This group comprises an inter-disciplinary group of researchers investigating social determinants of health, including family, social, socioeconomic and caregiving resources.  Topics of interest to the group include both social determinants of aging-related conditions (i.e. disease, disability and dementia) and social determinants of healthy aging over the life course.  We seek to better understand and strengthen resources of older adults to prevent and manage aging-related conditions and to promote healthy aging.  Meetings provide timely feedback related to conceptualization of research questions, study design, psychometric measurement, study implementation, data analyses and interpretation of results.  Meetings also support collaborative projects.
