National Advisory Committee

The Center draws upon the expertise of nationally-known professionals in various fields relating to senior health to serve on our National Advisory Committee.  These individuals are active in systems-wide research, intervention, and policy change that result in improved health for older adults.

The National Advisory Committee will meet in Temple in 2011 and 2013 to provide guidance for the Center’s research and funding activities.  Additionally, National Advisors are invited to give a Visiting Scholar lecture as part of the Center’s Senior Health Grand Rounds.
