On December 7, 4 graduate students from the occupational therapy program at Jefferson School of Health Professions presented their final Masters projects. All projects were part of the development of the Healthy Aging exhibit, covering Living with Diabetes (Greg Crawford), Psychosocial Aspects of Aging (Luz Hincapie), Healthy Caregiving (Jaime Stover), and Healthy Hearts (Maureen Coleman). Congratulations to all on their fine work!

The Healthy Aging exhibit will be part of a research study on use of virtual worlds to educate older adults about strategies for promoting health as one grows older. Recruitment of participants is expected to begin in January 2010, after further refinement of exhibit displays and format.
