Aging Rig Event with Rupal Parekh (Social Work) 11/6 @ 3PM

“Using Social Network Analysis to Optimize Access to Culturally Responsive and Affordable Transportation for Older (Im)igrants.”


InCHIP’s Aging Research Interest Group has invited Rupal Parekh, PhD (Social Work) to give a presentation on the impact of transportation on aging migrant and immigrant populations.

Dr Parekh has over a decade of professional and practice experience working with diverse older adult populations across the continuum of care. Her primary research aim is to improve outcomes for late-life immigrants, with particular attention to the role of the built environment on social isolation. Her research advocates for the development of culturally-grounded assessment tools, evidence-based practices, and national and state legislation to address the needs of older adults at the intersection of social isolation, multiple health issues, and structural and social barriers.
