DETCOG AAA & ADRCs will be closed November 26 & 27 in observation of Thanksgiving
by American Society on Aging
Note: Season 2 of Equity & Justice by American Society on Aging.
Karen Lincoln is an associate professor of Social Work and senior scientist at the University of Southern California Suzanne Dworak-Peck School of Social Work. She will address where her research on social and economic inequality and equity intersects with her community practice work with older African Americans who have Alzheimer’s and other mental health conditions, as well as the impact of the coronavirus on this same population. And how she views the issues of police brutality through the equity/equality lens.
