The Secondary Data in Aging Interest Group is an interdisciplinary learning collaborative. Focusing on research using secondary data, this group discusses theoretical and methodological issues and research of policy and programs relevant for a person’s life course and aging.
This is an opportunity for participants to: learn about common data sources for secondary research in aging, hear about issues and methods of interest for researchers in St. Louis, share concepts and in-progress research to receive feedback, and identify opportunities for collaboration.
All experience levels, department and university/organization affiliations are invited. No registration is necessary.
We will meet on the 4th Friday of every month during the academic year.
Annie Harmon, PhD
Assistant Professor, Division of Geriatrics & Nutritional Science, Washington University School of Medicine
Dr. Harmon’s research focus explores driving assessment and rehabilitation through use of driving simulation along with driving reduction and cessation in medically impaired adults. Her current work studying decisions about returning to driving after a stroke and driving in later life provides unique insights beyond traditional risk assessment with an emphasis on salient social roles and identities tied to operating a motor vehicle in the United States.
