Gerontology capstone presentations to span a variety of aging topics

Gerontology, the study of aging, is a broad discipline. Our upcoming Capstone presentations by graduate gerontology students, which will take place on Wednesday, May 3, demonstrate that breadth.

The graduate gerontology program is offered completely online, giving students the option to present their capstone work in person or from a remote location. Both in-person presentations and presentations via Skype are open to the public and will take place at the Center for Aging & Community in the UIndy Health Pavilion, Room 210.
