Gateway to Global Aging DataAs part of the Gateway to Global Aging Data ( and in partnership with the Center to Accelerate Population Research in Alzheimer’s (, we are organizing a monthly virtual seminar series on long-term care, services, and policy. The seminar series aims to promote international interactions among scholars in this growing field of research. Presentations will typically be on in-progress work and discussions are strongly encouraged.

Seminars will be monthly on the 3rd Thursday, starting January 19, 2023, at 5pm Central European Time, 11am US Eastern Time, and 8am US Pacific Time.
