2012 NIA-funded Institute on Research in Aging and Social Work
The program provides advanced training in aging research to Social Work Faculty. Participants develop knowledge and skills in research methodology and have the opportunity for extended contact with distinguished visiting professors and National Institute on Aging (NIA) staff. In addition, they work with colleagues from other institutions to develop a research proposal and submit it to NIA/NIH and other agencies. Participants are challenged to emphasize methodological issues in their own courses and to provide research experience to their students.
Program design includes an initial 8-day institute in Summer I, proposal development and consultation during the intervening year, a mid-year meeting in February, and a follow-up institute in Summer II.
The Initial Institute will be held July 16-23, 2012 in Duluth, Minnesota.
