School of Health and Human Sciences

Congratulations to Ronqeiya Luther, a student currently enrolled in our MS in Gerontology program.  She is the first recipient of the Nancy Edmunds Hannah Award in Gerontology. We would also like to thank the Hannah family for setting up this award to support a gerontology student such as Ronqeiya who interested in working with persons with Alzheimer’s or dementia. Ronqeiya is currently a graduate researcher at The Center for Outreach in Alzheimer’s, Aging, and Community Health. This summer her research on “The impact of community engaged family connectors in the recruitment and ascertainment of African American Families into genomic research studies” was presented at the Alzheimer’s Association International Conference. She will soon begin another internship experience where she will have an opportunity to work with memory care patients at Morningview Assisted Living Community in the Bridge to Rediscovery program.
