The Gerontology Program Student Organization (GPSO)
First meeting of the year - to be announced.
Welcome back! At our first meeting of the year, we'll be talking about upcoming events and electing new officers. Come out and meet other people interested in Gerontology who are students, students working in the field, and some alumni from the program!
If you are interested in the positions of President, Vice President, Graduate Representative/Secretary, or Undergraduate Representative/Membership, please email me and I will send you some information.
Some of the highlights of this meeting are:
- Solicit ideas for our GPSO BookClub book & set a date (and a new location since Bombadill's Coffeehouse is no more)
- Pick a GPSO fall charity event (last year we did Chore Day through Neighborhood Senior Services and raked leaves for a lovely, elderly woman in Ann Arbor)
- Elect new officers
- Talk about the Annual Fall Lecture/Reception
Pass along: Excellent article from the NYT about how Mick Jagger and other celebrity exceptions his age stir up feelings in the elderly that unless they are acting like that (or their grandchildren) then they aren't 'successfully' aging: http://www.nytimes.com/2010/07/11/weekinreview/11zernike.html?_r=2&emc=eta1
Thank you all for your interest in the Gerontology Program Student Organization at Eastern Michigan University.
