Mini Lessons & Learning... From a Distance

We are in the midst of rapid change to our society, our structures, our norms, our daily routines and our expectations for the future. Gerontology teaches us that aging, or living, is a holistic experience that includes our physical, psychological, social and spiritual health. All of these aspects of health are intertwined and what affects one will affect all other areas of our life.

We have so much to learn about holistic living from the field of Gerontology. And the VCU Gerontology family wants to share this knowledge with you. We are creating blogs, vlogs and micro learning lessons on topics like everyday ethics, trauma-informed care, person-centeredness, connectivity, ageism and much more to share with you here.

Watch, read, learn and share with us. Feel free to email us at with topics of interest!

Let’s take the opportunity to learn and grow together through these challenging times.
