Join us for the #TrendingNow workshop on Careers in Gerontology presented by Gerontology instructor Nicole Major, on Wednesday, September 26, from 1 -2 pm in the Career and Re-Entry Center, SSC 140. 

Gerontology is the study of the aging process and individuals as they grow from middle age through later in life. It includes (a) the study of physical, mental, and social changes in older people as they age; (b) the investigation of the change in society resulting from our aging population; and (c) the application of this knowledge to policies and program. As a result of the multidisciplinary focus of gerontology, professionals from diverse fields call themselves "gerontologists."
