Leaders in Aging Research

Each year the Scripps Gerontology Center brings a Leader in Aging Research to campus for a cutting-edge lecture.

Adam Perzynski, PhD Professor of Medicine and SociologyThis year we invited Adam Perzynski, professor of medicine and sociology at Case Western Reserve University to speak on his incredible work on health determinants and neighborhood in Cleveland. 

Healthcare systems, researchers, and policymakers have dramatically increased attention to the importance of social determinants of health. However, there remains a lack of clarity surrounding the most effective, community-centered pathways toward population health improvement. Drawing on bioecological developmental systems theory, Dr. Perzynski will review how individual and structural factors coalesce to differentiate and determine health and social outcomes for older adults.
