This is the first of a three-part interview with Dr. Margaret Manoogian. Dr. Manoogian is a professor in the Gerontology: Aging & Older Adulthood department of the Behavior Sciences Division. Her teaching focuses on Intersectionality and Aging, Exploring Aging Pathways, Parent-Child Relationships across the Lifespan, Social Ties and Aging, Adult Development and Aging, Life Course Review, Lifespan Development, Death, Dying, and Bereavement, and other Professional Issues in Gerontology.
In this episode, we learn about Dr. Manoogian, her history with Gerontology and passion for the study of intergenerational relationships, and the concept of intergenerational transmission among families (i.e., the transfer of individual abilities, traits, behaviors, and outcomes from parents to their children) and how it relates to… aging well.
