Alumni Advisory Group Inaugural Meeting
Alumi-Inaugrual-meeting.jpgAlumni Advisory Group meeting On August 1, 2016, Scripps Gerontology Center convened the inaugural meeting of the Gerontology Alumni Advisory Group. Executive Director Suzanne Kunkel noted that "Our history is rooted in the groundbreaking demographic research that took place here in the first five decades since our founding in 1922. We are deeply proud of that legacy. But we are equally proud of the next generation of pioneering work that began in the 1960's-research and education about aging. Our gerontology alums represent this momentous new legacy." The Alumni Advisory Group was formed with the purpose of advising the Scripps Gerontology Center regarding best ways for alumni to connect with each other, with current and future students, and with the broader Miami University and Scripps communities.
