Videos Now Online: Lefeber Winter Series on Aging
Mar 3, 2022,
The Lefeber Winter Series on Aging, now in its 27th year, features nationally recognized gerontology research educators, basic scientists, clinicians, and social scientists. Videos of the 2022 series are now available online at the Sealy Center on Aging website.
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.
