“Having the opportunity to become a Buxbaum Scholar was exceptionally rewarding. It was an honor to continue Jeanne K. Buxbaum’s legacy by working within the field of Gerontology. With an aging population in the United States, the research we were working on was certainly prevalent and has the potential to improve the field as well as current practices within Gerontology, as we currently know it.”Delaney White
