Upcoming Events

Once again, UMSL Gerontology will partner with our colleagues at Saint Louis University and Washington University to host a Careers in Aging Program on Wednesday evening, April 9th, from 5:30-8 PM, on the SLU campus. We will be showing a very interesting film about aging - Grow Old Along with Me: The Poetry of Aging (2000) -  starring James Earl Jones and others. This will be followed by a panel discussion with emphasis on career paths. Mark your calendar! Adult guests are welcome. A free dinner will be served. A registration link will be posted here soon. Questions? Contact Dr. Marla Berg-Weger.

No other new events are planned at this time. We sponsor and co-sponsor various educational events throughout the year. We've offered programming in the past on life review in aging, narrative medicine, ethics in long-term care, the benefits of artistic pursuits in advancing age, health disparities in cognitiev aging, and a host of other topics. We are always open to co-sponsoring programs with community organzations and other academic institutions. Please contact Program Director, Dr. Tom Meuser, to discuss your ideas for collaboration.
