Scripps Gerontology Center

396 Upham Hall, 513-529-2914

The mission of the Scripps Gerontology Center, an Ohio Center of Excellence, is to do work that makes a difference in the lives of aging individuals, their families and communities, and to meet the needs of aging societies. We accomplish this mission through research, education and service.

Current research includes health, disability, and longevity; long-term care systems and services; workforce issues; caregiving; and demography. The center assists faculty and students with research proposals and projects related to aging and awards several graduate research assistantships each year.

The center provides administrative support to the university's academic programs in aging and offers a number of special events each year, including the P.K. Whelpton lecture, Green Tea Day, invited speakers, and a brown bag discussion series.

Scripps Research Library and Resource Center contains gerontology publications, audio-visual aids, and curriculum materials for faculty and graduate student use.
