Resilience and Independence in Aging Seminar


Guest Speaker
Dr. Kenneth Covinsky, MD, PhD





Series Background:
The Resilience and Independence in Aging Seminar Series is designed to facilitate aging research and to foster new generations of investigators at the University of Arizona to address significant aging research questions. The seminar will bring UA researchers together to create synergies by sharing research findings and research plans. The series will also provide opportunities for UA researchers to meet and to hear from lead investigators of aging and resilience in other research institutions, specifically Pepper Centers.

The goal of the Claude D. Pepper Older Americans Independence Centers (OAIC) program is to increase scientific knowledge that allows older adults to maintain or restore their independence. The NIA supports the OAICs to develop and enhance research and education at institutions with strong programs in aging research. This support is critical to address key research problems, technological limitations, and faculty development needs for future generations of appropriately-trained researchers. The OAICs are also known as "Pepper Centers" - so named to honor the late Senator Claude D. Pepper who championed the effort to create these centers of excellence.


This seminar will be held in the Keating Building Room 103 .
