Session Description

The Aging Special Interest Group (SIG) addresses issues related to aging with a disability. The Aging SIG Chair is Tamar Heller, PhD, Director of the Institute on Disability and Human Development at the University of Illinois at Chicago. Any interested AUCD network member may join this SIG meeting, and/or join the Aging SIG listserv. For details on accessing the listserv, click this link.

Special Interest Groups, or SIGs, are made up of individuals in the AUCD network who have a common topical interest. SIGs, which are open to anyone in the network including trainees, serve as a mechanism for sharing information, engaging in dialogue, and generating new ideas. SIGs are led by one or more individuals from the network (with AUCD staff support if needed); they typically meet in-person at the AUCD Conference and may share information via emails, conference calls, or webinars throughout the year. Because SIGs are driven by the interests of the AUCD membership, new SIGs may emerge while ones that have run their course may disband.
