Dr. Jennifer Sasser, director of the gerontology program and human sciences department chair, will be joined by Marylhurst colleagues Natasha Niro and Jo Anne Long, JD, to present at the Association for Gerontology in Higher Education conference in February 2014.

Marylhurst faculty Natasha Niro, Jo Anne Long and Jennifer Sasser will facilitate a resource exchange:

The AGHE Annual Meeting and Educational Leadership Conference is the premier national forum for discussing ideas and issues in gerontological and geriatrics education. Educators, clinicians, administrators, researchers and students share their experiences, expertise and innovations regarding teaching and learning about aging and older persons.
