July 24, 2012

The RoseMary B. Fuss Center for Research on Aging and Intergenerational Studies has announced that Lasell Professor Kim Farah has been selected as the inaugural 2012-2013 Fuss Center Faculty Fellow. As a fellow, Farah will work with the Fuss Center to develop a project that brings together her scholarly interests with issues related to aging and intergenerational relations.

Farah, who is a Professor of Chemistry, has scholarly interests in the areas of new analytical techniques for environmental analysis, toxicology, storm water engineering and statistical process control.

The Fuss Center is dedicated to enhancing the quality of life for older adults through research, community partnerships, and teaching focused on aging, lifelong learning, and intergenerational programs.

This fall the Fuss Center will launch a "Talk of Ages" program, which aims to bring together the intergenerational community around themes of mutual interest. The 2012-2013 theme will be "Healthy Aging and the Environment." Several events are planned, including a screening of "A Sense of Wonder" and talkback with film actor, Kaiulani Lee, in honor of the 50th anniversary of the publication of Rachel Carson's "Silent Spring."
