At the Benjamin Rose Institute on Aging, we disseminate findings from research projects conducted by the Center for Research and Education widely to professionals and older adults and their families. Our results are also published in peer reviewed journals such as The Gerontologist, The Journal of the American Geriatrics Society and Alzheimer's and Dementia: Translational Research and Clinical Interventions. We also translate our research findings into useful information for older adults and families as part of the Consumer Information Initiative. Below is a list of publications by Benjamin Rose staff.
