David J. Stern Lecture on Innovations in Social Work & Gerontology
In our continuing exploration of the synergy between social work and other professions we are delighted to welcome Majd Alwan, Ph.D., a world-renowned authority on technologies that help other individuals live more safely and independently in their homes.
As executive director of LeadingAge Center for Aging Services Technologies (CAST), Dr. Alwan has created and led a network of technology companies, health and geriatric service providers and research insitutions focused on applying and developing technology-enhanced models of care. The network advocates for older consumers, caregivers and providers, and fosters interdisciplinary cooperation among its participants.
Lunch will be served and free continuing education credits will be available. For alumni, friends, and others without valid Rutgers parking permits, event parking will be available in lots 11, 26 and 30.
