Age In Action – Newsletter

Below is a link to the newest issue of the “Age In Action” newsletter which is issued quarterly by the Virginia Center on Aging at the School of Allied Health Professions, Virginia Geriatric Education Center and Virginia Commonwealth University  (Edward F. Ansello, Ph.D., Director)

This issue features a case study on the effectiveness of music therapy when caring for people with dementia; the author is an experienced music therapist in the Department of Arts in Healthcare at the VCU Medical Center. This issue also has articles on the lack of older adults in medical research and the implications of this under-representation; announcements of newly funded research in our Alzheimer’s and Related Research Award Fund; editorials on older prisoners and on how people plan for long-term care (they don’t), calendar items, and blurbs on other items.
