Gary Anderson has been involved in three Hartford Foundation projects designed to infuse gerontological content in undergraduate education, expand continuing education for professionals in a variety of health-related disciplines who are working with older adults, and in an innovative field practicum pilot that involves rotation internship experiences for graduate social work students. He has edited a book on Health Care Ethics, and published articles on issues related to grief and loss. The School leads a Kinship Care Resource Center that provides information, resources and advocacy for older adults who are raising their grandchildren or other relatives. This project is supported by the State of Michigan Office on Aging and the State of Michigan Department of Human Services.
