University of Rhode Island Professor Wins National Mentoring Award in Gerontology

Clark has also specialized in narrative gerontology, which focuses on a patient’s entire life — not just his or her health — and health care policy and ethics. As an educator first, however, teaching and mentoring are among his top priorities, and he teaches multiple courses at the undergraduate and graduate level. Much of his instruction focuses on interprofessional education.

Sensory Loss Can Be a Warning Sign of Poor Health Outcomes, Including Death

A long-term study spanning five years and including more than 3,000 nationally-representative older US adults has found that a natural decline of the five classical senses (vision, hearing, taste, smell and touch) can predict a number of poor health outcomes, including greater risk of death.

As Retirement Age Creeps Up, the Health of Those Close to Retirement Is Getting Worse, Study Finds

Ten years from now, Americans born in 1960 will be able to start collecting their full Social Security retirement check, at the age of 67. That’s two years later than their parents, because of a change in the federal retirement age enacted in 1983. But a new study shows that today’s pre-retirement generation already has more health issues and health-related limits on their lives than prior generations did when they were in their late 50s.

Tooth Trouble: Many Middle-Aged Adults Report Dental Pain, Embarrassment and Poor Prevention

The dental health of middle-aged Americans faces a lot of problems right now, and an uncertain future to come, according to new national poll results. One in three Americans between the ages of 50 and 64 say they’re embarrassed by the condition of their teeth, and that dental problems have caused pain or other problems in the past two years. Forty percent of those polled don’t get regular cleanings or other preventive oral care.

Mayo Clinic Researchers Review the Clinical Potential of Senolytic Drugs on Aging

]Researchers are moving closer to realizing the clinical potential of drugs that have previously been shown to support healthy aging in animals. In a review article published online in the Journal of the American Geriatrics Society, Mayo Clinic aging experts say that, if proven to be effective and safe in humans, these drugs could be “transformative” by preventing or delaying chronic conditions as a group instead of one at a time.
