Community Liaison Core: Description

Celia Kaplan, Leader; Tung Nguyen, Co-Leader; Julene Johnson, member.

The Community Liaison Core (CLC) of the CADC is the unit of the Center that focuses on the development and maintenance of academic-community partnerships. The mission of the CLC is to foster mutually beneficial academic-community partnerships to promote health and healthy aging among ethnically diverse older adults. Our faculty and staff facilitate aging research in ethnically diverse populations and provide technical assistance to community partners who would like to become involved in minority aging research. Our research is enriched by the colorful mosaic that is the ethnically and linguistically diverse San Francisco Bay Area population.
