Congratulations to Wendy Bartlo, who successfully defended her dissertation “‘I can see my values in places’: relationships, place, and growing old in Detroit” and will graduate from the Anthropology Department at Wayne State University in December. Not missing a beat, Wendy has joined the Center on Health, Aging, and Disability in the College of Applied Health Sciences at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign as Proposal Development and Outreach Specialist. Well done Wendy!
And another congratulations to long-standing AAGE member Margaret “Peggy” Perkinson, who will be Associate Professor and Director of the Center on Aging at University of Hawaii at Manoa starting January 1, 2017 (I am still waiting for the invite to the New Year’s luau party Peggy).
I am sure that there are many more AAGE members with good news that deserve some recognition and hearty applause, and I promise I will toast all of you at the AAGE dinner at #AAA2016!
