The GVC is a student group committed to fostering cross-generational dialogue by hosting spirited events where students actively engage with older adults.
Pragmatic Research at The Alliance for Aging
Our research aims to address the critical needs of aging adults. Current research projects include technology-based treatments for home-bound older adults; coping with late-life grief and loss; the role of personality in optimal aging; the application of positive psychology to promote behavior change; and person-centered dementia evaluation.
