Zimmerman publishes special issues of Alzheimer’s Care Today

Sheryl Zimmerman, Ph.D. and colleagues published two recent special issues of Alzheimer’s Care Today (January/March and April/June 2010) focusing on dementia care training in nursing homes and assisted living settings. The ten articles in the special issues address numerous topics related to successful training programs, and are based on a multi-state evaluation of the Alzheimer Association’s first national training program.

Two papers were authored by Susan Fletcher, a new doctoral graduate of our program.

A UNC distinguished professor, Zimmerman is the director of aging research at the School of Social Work; director of UNC’s Interdisciplinary Certificate in Aging; co-director of UNC’s Interdisciplinary Center for Aging Research; co-director of the Program on Aging, Disability and Long-Term Care at UNC’s Cecil G. Sheps Center for Health Services Research; and an adjunct professor in the Department of Epidemiology at the School of Public Health.
