Grant Helps Establish Center On Aging – McDaniel College
WESTMINSTER, Md. — McDaniel College plans to use a $150,000 grant to establish a Center for the Study of Aging.
Officials at the Westminster school said the center will help develop geriatric expertise for Carroll and neighboring counties as the baby boomers age.
The grant comes from the Jessie Ball duPont Religious, Charitable and Educational Fund.
Provost Tom Falkner said the creation of the center reflects growing student interest in gerontology as well as community need.
College President Joan Develin Coley said the center will offer graduate and undergraduate-level degrees and continuing education opportunities for students, service providers, community leaders and policymakers.
