Research and development of technologies being conducted at the University of Maine’s Center on Aging were mentioned in U.S. Sen. Susan Collins’ weekly column, “The aging and thriving in place movement.” The column also cited a recent testimony before the U.S. Senate Special Committee on Aging by Carol Kim, vice president for research and dean of the graduate school at UMaine. The hearing of the committee, which Collins chairs, was held to examine how advances in technology can help seniors live independently and age in place, according to the column. Kim spoke about UMaine’s multidisciplinary initiatives focused on helping elders to age and thrive in place.
