About 50 participants attended the Resource Centers for Minority Aging Research (RCMAR) workshop at the IAGG World Congress of Gerontology and Geriatrics July 23 in San Francisco. RCMAR events included a workshop organized by Center Faculty Associates Janet Frank and Nina Harawa and Community Relations Manager Porsche McGinnis, and a symposium chaired by Associate Center Director Steven P. Wallace,.

At the main IAGG conference, RCMAR affiliates presented more than 25 sessions on minority aging research, ranging from the biology of aging to dementia and social support in the Mexican-origin population to the role of gardens play in keeping aging residents of Detroit healthy.
