    Kelly Gleason, Drs. Szanton and Gitlin Publish New Article

    PhD candidate Kelly Gleason and Drs. Sarah Szanton and Laura Gitlin have published a new manuscript titled "The Association of Socioeconomic Conditions and Readiness to Learn New Ways of Performing Daily Activities in Older Adults With Functional Difficulties" in the Journal of Applied Gerontology. The publication reports on their work examining readiness to learn new ways of performing daily activities among older adults with functional limitations, and how readiness is impacted by socioeconomic conditions. They found that older adults with difficulties affording food are more likely to demonstrate willingness to participate in an intervention to reduce disability. Great work!
