The Hartford Center: Translating Research Into Practice

AUGUST 5, 2013

The Hartford Academic Center of Excellence in Geriatric Social Work at Boston College recently launched and will focus on translating research into practice. Led by Dr. James Lubben, the Louise McMahon Ahearn Professor in the Boston College Graduate School of Social Work and a leading scholar in social gerontology, the Center will collaborate with local agencies to identify gaps in education and training on aging. The Hartford Center will translate research into new knowledge to inform practice and policy in geriatric social work.

The Hartford Center aims to be a resource for agencies serving older adults and for individual practitioners within the field. It will draw upon a decade of research supported by the Geriatric Social Work Initiative, a Hartford funded national collaboration between academic social work programs across the country.

The Hartford Center will focus specifically on interdisciplinary collaborations at Boston College and in the New England region. The Center will collaborate with departments at Boston College that study aging and health along with Hartford Academic Centers of Excellence in Medicine and Nursing at other universities.

Boston College was one of the first two universities to be designated as a Hartford Academic Center of Excellence in Geriatric Social Work.
