Community-Engaged Research in Low-Income Contexts

Monday, June 13, 2022
11 a.m. to 12 p.m. ET
Register Here
Free for everyone

The privileged position and assumptions of researchers often remain unquestioned when involving communities with starkly different socioeconomic statuses. This presents considerable challenges to effectively benefitting the communities we purport to help. This webinar presents experiences of Community-Engaged Research from the perspectives of researcher and community stakeholder, among refugees and/or precariously-housed populations in two cities. Discussion will focus on contextual considerations when conducting research across different communities.

Presented by:

  • Sudha Shreeniwas, PhD, Associate Professor, Dept. of Human Development and Family Studies, University of North Carolina Greensboro
  • Jenny Konkin, President & Co-Founder, Whole Way House Society
  • Sharon Morrison, PhD
  • Tetyana Shippee, PhD, FGSA, Associate Professor, Health Policy and Management, University of Minnesota

This program is sponsored by the GSA Community-Engaged Research Interest Group

Responding to Reviews (GSA Manuscript Writing and Reviewer Skills Program)

Tuesday, June 21, 2022
12 p.m. ET to 1:30 p.m. ET
See registration instructions above
Free for members; $25 for nonmembers

The value of publishing in gerontology extends beyond the investigator to other researchers, scholars, practitioners, and ultimately improvements in life for older adults and society alike. With this in mind, GSA is offering a live webinar series with practical advice on manuscript writing and reviewing. Graduate students and emerging professionals as well as experienced scholars who want to hone their writing and reviewing skills and become more involved in the publishing process will benefit from the hands-on practice, discussion of the “human side” of publishing, pointers from authors of manuscripts accepted by journals, and the insiders’ view with a panel of editors on what constitutes a good paper.

Presented by:

  • Sean N. Halpin, PhD, Evidera
  • Tamara Baker, PhD, FGSA, Editor-in-Chief of Ethnicity & Health; Editor Emeritus of Gerontology and Geriatric Medicine
