This presentation is one of a series of forums sponsored by the CSU, Chico Interdisciplinary Center on Aging. Dr. Seema Sehrawat, Center Director and faculty for the CSU, Chico School of Social Work, gives an overview of the Center’s work. She traces the growth of the Center since it began at CSU, Chico in 2009. Dr. Sehrawat also shares statistical and demographic information about older adults in Northern California – for example, 10.6 percent of Californians are 65 or older, but the percentage for the 20 Northern California counties is 14.2 and the percentage for Butte County is up to 15.8. The Center connects the University with the community and works in collaboration with community resources, such as Passages. Programs also provide information for students who plan to work in the field of gerontology.
