  • Hartford National Center to Host Workshops at GSA Annual Meeting

    At this year’s GSA Annual Scientific Meeting in Washington, DC the Hartford National Center on Gerontological Social Work Excellence will be sponsoring two excellent pre-conference workshops for attendees. The first, Accelerating Translation of Knowledge to Community Practices for Older Adults: Aging with Disabilities workshop, will encourage participants to assess and clarify the state of translational research and identifying the next logical steps in intervention development, adaptation, implementation and dissemination research regarding aging with disabilities. The second, the Hartford Geriatric Social Work Mentoring Institute, aims to provide junior level social work faculty with a clear cut method of establishing strong, productive mentoring ties.
