Aging Families and Health Symposium: Social Influences on Health Lifestyle Choices in Later Life

Support from family is recognized as a critical, yet understudied, element of how people interpret and respond to health problems. Presenters will focus on interpersonal mechanisms that link social ties to health outcomes of older adults. Presenters will be Deborah Carr, PhD, Rutgers University; Karen Hooker, PhD, Oregon State University; and Alex Zautra, PhD, Arizona State University.
The symposium is free and open to the public; however, registration is required at the website below.
This event is supported by the Center for Families and the Center on Aging and the Life Course at Purdue University and is part of a conference series focused on “Emerging Research on Families and Health” supported by the Center for Families at Purdue University.
