Seniors-4-Seniors Partners with Felician University
S4S and the Institute for Gerontology at Felician University have joined forces to develop some exciting initiatives for the community.
Making a Difference, The Felician Way.
Felician University, in support of its Catholic-Franciscan mission, created an Institute for Gerontology (IFG) in 2013 to address the human, societal and health conditions of a growing elderly population in the United States.
Working in conjunction with community partners, the Institute provides educational programs, conducts research, and promotes public policy and legislative initiatives that enhance healthy aging. By involving far-reaching constituents, the Institute prepares and assists community leaders in making a difference in the lives of an aging population.
In addition, the Institute seeks to sponsor state-wide summits on aging. By engaging businesses, non-profit agencies, health care organizations, and educational partners, the Institute expects to reach a broad constituency of the citizenry.
Listen to the podcast interview of Lita Talbot and Dr. Lou Ruvolo with Dr. Marie Cueman, Director of the IFG on any of the three sites listed below.
