PARC Aging Chats | Location: Zoom Meeting
Population Aging Research Center
Description:

This research theme focuses on studies of sociocultural, economic, and environmental circumstances impacting the well-being of older individuals around the world, and analyses of physical, mental and cognitive aging trajectories in diverse and understudied populations across a wide spectrum of socioeconomic development. This Chat will highlight PARC’s international networks and connections, feature some of PARC’s signature global aging projects and collaborators, encourage discussions how aging and aging-trajectories in low- and middle income differ from the more frequently studied patterns in high-income contexts, and explore how PARC can leverage its global connections to make distinctive contributions to the field of global aging research. Register here.

PARC Aging Chats | Location: Zoom Meeting
Population Aging Research Center
Description:

This research theme includes the exploration of early developmental circumstances that may be crucial for shaping how we age, including nutrition, infectious disease, social support, education, and gene-environment interactions prenatally and during childhood. This theme is firmly rooted in understanding aging as a process that begins at conception, rather than being a discrete stage marked by having reached a specific biological age. PARC associates pursue research on the early-life determinants of mortality and health in diverse domestic and international contexts. This Chat will focus on how PARC can facilitate the use of exceptional cohort and/or multigenerational data for these research questions, stimulate comparative research on the early-life determinants of aging, facilitate collaborations between PARC associates and across affiliated centers to enhance the understanding of life-course determinants of aging and possible policy-responses that can help reduce health inequalities stemming from early-life adversities that predominantly affect some subsets of populations. Register here.
