Building Collaboration in Aging Research and Education among CSUs

On behalf of the CHAMP Conference Committee we are inviting CSU faculty submit an abstract for the CHAMP conference on April 5, 2013. The PDF version is also included below. We look forward to receiving abstracts by February 17, 2013 for this peer-reviewed conference! Please email Sang Lee or Sadhna Diwan if you have any questions.

CHAMP ( is housed at San José State University. The inaugural conference last year was a part of our effort to foster collaboration in aging research and education across CSU campuses in the Bay Area. Faculty and student presentations were well received by over 100 attendees including students, faculty and community partners from the Bay Area. This year we are expanding the conference to include additional CSU campuses.

We encourage submission focused on health and aging in multicultural/diverse contexts – e.g., empirical papers, conceptual/theoretical papers, model curriculum/program, and innovative pedagogy including using online technology. There are two presentation formats:  1) Oral presentation (15 minutes); 2) a 30-minute symposium/panel on a topic related to the theme of the conference.

This invitation is also extended to undergraduate and graduate students. Students can submit abstracts of their research on health and aging in multicultural/diverse contexts for a poster presentation. There will be a designated time slot for the student poster sessions during the conference.

Abstracts are welcome from the following disciplines (but not limited to): communication disorders, gerontology, health science, justice studies, kinesiology, nursing, nutrition, occupational therapy, psychology, social work, and sociology.

The deadline for submission of abstracts is February 17, 2013. Your abstract will be peer-reviewed by the Conference Program Committee and a decision letter will be sent out at the end of February, 2013.
