The newly founded Marymount Center for Optimal Aging (MCOA) serves as a central hub for research, education, practice, advocacy, and leadership. MCOA fosters innovative academic-community partnerships by connecting interdisciplinary teams of scientists, professionals, trainees, students, and stakeholders to properly address the needs and quality of life of older adults.
One mechanism to support the MCOA mission is our new Virtual Colloquium Series. The specific goals of the Virtual Colloquium are to:
- Bring innovative leaders, researchers, and speakers from the field of optimal aging to Marymount University to share their expertise and experience with a broad community of individuals invested in optimal aging.
- Facilitate networking and collaborative opportunities among participants of the Virtual Colloquium series, to result in new partnerships for research, education, and advocacy/service activities for optimal aging.
- Inspire new and expanded initiatives for research in optimal aging for all attendees.
The MCOA Virtual Colloquium will be a regular event. Speaker announcements will be posted one month prior to the event and registration is required.
