Crittenden Writes Op-Ed on Aging Research for BDN

The Bangor Daily News published the opinion piece, “A tech-friendly future for seniors: From ‘smart homes’ to an app that lets you read to your grandchildren remotely” by Jennifer Crittenden, assistant director of the University of Maine Center on Aging. UMaine has recently designated aging as an emerging area of excellence, Crittenden wrote, adding the designation will stimulate the development of cutting-edge aging-in-place technologies in Maine. Crittenden is a member of the Maine chapter of the Scholars Strategy Network, which brings together scholars across the country to address public challenges and their policy implications. Members’ columns appear in the BDN every other week.
