Aging Across UW – Third Thursdays

Posted: 10/19/2020 (CSDE Research)

Under the leadership of CSDE Trainee Callie Freitag (doctoral student at the Evans School of Public Policy & Governance), Third Thursdays is a monthly gathering of researchers to talk informally about their work in the context of the ongoing pandemic. Each month, the group focuses on a particular dimension of aging research with a particular focus on how the pandemic is influencing all of it. You can also talk about how doing aging research during the pandemic is affecting you as a person. Last week’s discussion covered the social ecological model of health and how social forces shape genetic expression and experiences of Alzheimer’s Disease. If you’d like to participate in the future please email Callie Freitag ( and look for upcoming announcements in CSDE’s demography events calendar.
