Graduate Students Invited to meet PAA President Eileen Crimmins and Discuss Research on Aging

Posted: 11/9/2020 (Local Events)

Dr. Eileen Crimmins will be giving a public talk at 1:30pm (see above) about the Future of Aging. If you’re a graduate student interested in aging research, then Dr. Crimmins is a must-know in aging research! Following her public talk, graduate students are invited at 4pm for special discussion with Dr. Crimmins. CSDE Trainee Callie Freitag will facilitate the graduate student discussion about pursuing an academic career in demography, multidisciplinarity, directing large research efforts, and finding the edges of existing research. RSVP by emailing Callie at freitagc@uw.edu. This will be wonderful opportunity to meet Dr. Crimmins.

For your reference, Dr. Crimmins is the AARP Professor of Gerontology at the University of Southern California and the current President of the Population Association of America. Much of her work has focused on changes in health and mortality over time. She conceptualizes population health broadly to include life expectancy, disability, and biological markers of health risks. Dr. Crimmins’ work has been on the leading edge of integrating biomarkers into population studies and identifying the long-lasting impacts of early life health experiences. Join Dr. Crimmins for a discussion about population aging, biodemography, and emerging frontiers in demography. In addition, Dr. Crimmins can speak about pursuing an academic career in demography, multidisciplinarity, directing large research efforts, and finding the edges of existing research.
