Save the Date: Lefeber Winter Series on Aging Online Jan 25 - Feb 22, 2022
Jan 7, 2022,
The Lefeber Winter Series on Aging, now in its 27th year, features nationally recognized gerontology research educators, basic scientists, clinicians, and social scientists. All lectures will be held via Zoom. RSVP required for password. Lectures are open to everyone.
The series honors Dr. Edward James Lefeber, a UTMB professor of Medicine who was a strong proponent of eldercare and the study of aging, at a time when few doctors were prepared to care for older patients. The community is invited each Tuesday for five weekly lectures. Speakers present a lecture on an important aspect of aging research and consult with students, faculty, and staff on research topics, grant applications, and articles being written for publication. The lecture series is open to the general public and attracts a number of seniors and healthcare providers from the Galveston community, in addition to UTMB scientists and providers.
