Research Affinity Groups
The Research Affinity Groups are based in the College of Health and Human Services. The Research Affinity Group focused on aging brings together faculty and staff with common interests in how connections between scholarly and community-based work can advance our understanding of and support for healthy aging in an individual’s community of choice. Research includes a care-receiver assessment, a study of the use of iPads by caregivers, and research exploring factors that influence the health and wellness of individuals living in subsidized senior housing.
