Where aging, education and community meet. www.mcdaniel.edu/csa The Center for the Study of Aging at McDaniel College was established in 2007 with the goal of serving as a model for other small institutions as to how collaboration between higher education and the agencies and organizations supporting older adults can be developed as a truly interdisciplinary program that emphasizes a balance of research, theory, and practice, including diversity issues that address the multicultural issues in the field of aging.

Mission: The Center for the Study of Aging at McDaniel College will serve as the primary regional resource to promote successful aging in a community responsive approach that bridges generations and fosters understanding and innovations.

I write today with mixed emotions to share with you that Diane Martin, PhD, Director of the Center for the Study of Aging (CSA) at McDaniel College will be leaving the College at the end of current academic year. She has accepted a position teaching in the graduate school at the University of Maryland- Baltimore, where she will also serve as faculty director of their Geriatrics & Gerontology Education and Research (GGEAR) Program.

Diane has been a respected member of the faculty at McDaniel for twelve years. During her tenure, Diane provided leadership for the College’s Center for the Study of Aging in order to establish and maintain excellent academic and non-academic programs to meet the needs of students, older adults, and the community. Diane was instrumental in the development of the Master of Science program in Gerontology and under her tutelage the undergraduate Gerontology minor became the first minor in the country to be recognized as a program of merit by the Association for Gerontology in Higher Education. Together with her students, Diane has published several papers and presented at more than two dozen national conferences.

In addition to her graduate and undergraduate teaching and mentorship, as director of the CSA, Diane promoted age-education in our community and increased awareness of the needs of older adults through her numerous workshops; symposiums; and conferences, including the CSA’s signature “State of Aging” conference held annually since 2015. Through her events, Diane has hosted local and regional speakers on age-related topics, as well as state; national; and international leaders in aging policy and research, including Maryland Secretary of Aging, the honorable Rona E. Kramer; bioethicist Harry Moody, PhD; and neurologist Majid Fatuhi, MD.

Diane has also worked hard to foster partnerships with the many agencies and retirement communities in our region serving older adults and their families; many of which provide opportunities for employment, internships, and experiential learning for our students. Her work with the Carroll County Bureau of Aging & Disability to collect data for the Carroll County “Aging in Place” (AIP) Needs Assessment Survey led to the Carroll County Commission on Aging & Disabilities to form a sub-committee to investigate AIP models suitable for the County. Most recently, Diane received a grant to develop and deliver an online education and training program related to the State of Maryland’s AIP initiative-- Community for Life.

Diane represents well the long and proud history of community involvement for which the College is known, and I am grateful for her service. She will be truly missed by everyone in Graduate and Professional Studies, faculty, staff, and students alike. I am truly happy for the opportunities that Diane has in front of her and I believe that she will continue to have an impact on age education in Maryland.

We have taken steps to ensure that students in the gerontology program will continue to receive the high quality educational experience they have come to know. We will remain in touch over the coming weeks concerning next steps and ongoing activities at the College and with the Center for the Study of Aging. Questions can be forwarded to Ann Thomas ([email protected]).

Sincerely,

Mike Tyler

[08/29/18]   Congratulations to Sanaa Mahfouz who, this week, became the 35th graduate of the Master's in Gerontology program at McDaniel College (and the 7th to select the Thesis option)

Thesis Title: "Relationship of Alzheimer's Disease and Mitigating Factors of Traumatic Brain Disease "

​Abstract: While traumatic brain injury (TBI) and Alzheimer’s disease (AD) are worldwide issues, minority populations are often understudied. The gaps in the current literature do not allow researchers to understand how AD affects different populations. TBI is a known risk factor for AD development due to the neurodegenerative properties that occur after an injury. Genetics also play a major role in the development of dementia. Apolipoprotein E4 (Apoe4) is strongly associated with the development of AD. This study explores the relationship between TBI and AD with regard to gender, race, and genetics. Data were collected from the National Alzheimer’s Coordinating Center (NACC). The dataset contained nearly 17,000 participants from across the country. Participants were categorized into four groups: TBI-/AD- (control), TBI-/AD+, TBI+/AD-, TBI+/AD+. Chi-square of independence tests, univariate logistic regression models, and a multivariate logistic regression model were conducted in order to examine possible relationships between the variables. The largest predictor of incident AD was genetics, in that participants with at least one e4 allele exhibited higher rates of incident AD, independent of gender, race, and TBI history. These results demonstrate the role genetics has in predicting AD, strengthening the current literature. Future studies should examine global genetics in order to better understand which populations are more susceptible to AD development.

The special focus for our Fourth Annual State of Aging Conference is Person-Centered Care (PCC). The concept of PCC is founded on mutual respect for the dignity and responsibility of each individual person. It puts the elder and his/her family at the heart of every decision, empowering them to be genuine partners in promoting an environment that focuses on the whole person, not just medical needs. In addition to examining the foundational pillars of PCC and regulatory initiatives, our interactive sessions will focus on best practices in implementing PCC and developing indicators to measure success in your setting. This transformational journey to person-centered care is intended for health professionals, public & private administrators and service providers, business owners, educators, community members, and others with an interest in promoting the quality of life and dignity of our older adult population.
