We welcome volunteers to help us in our work. Sometimes this is in advising research, other times it involves working with students on assignments. Students often do not know adults over the age of 60 besides their own grandparents. You can help students learn more about aging and adult development by sharing your experience and life perspective. Sign up for our “Experience Club” listserv where we post notices about opportunities to work with students in large and small settings. Sign up with an email address here.
Research Participation Across the Life Span (PALS) is a database project that connects people interested in participating in research activities at Penn State.
Researchers at Penn State are engage in a number of projects related to healthy aging including the study of memory, language skills, stroke rehabilitation, exercise, motor control, brain imaging and nutrition. Research volunteers play a vital role in helping to advance our research and without the contributions of people like you, research could not progress. Learn more about Research PALS here.
