Director of Geriatric Education and Research Marilyn Gugliucci, Ph.D., was the invited speaker at two events recently.
First she traveled to Medstar Montgomery Medical Center in Olney, Maryland, to provide two lectures for hospital staff, physicians and administrators. These lectures were: “Aging and the Reflective Practitioner” and “Care for the Hospitalized Older Adult.”
Gugliucci then traveled to San Diego, California, for the 66th Annual Scientific Meeting of the Gerontological Society of America to present in a session titled “Mentorship for Health Sciences Emerging Scholars and Students.”
Gugliucci also assumed the elected position of chair for the Gerontological Society of America Health Sciences Section, which has over 1,600 members. The society is the nation's oldest and largest interdisciplinary organization devoted to research, education and practice in the field of aging.
