Event Description:
The CUNY Institute for Demographic Research (CIDR) presents the next in our series of demography seminars

Dr. Lois M. Verbrugge
Research Professor Emerita and Senior Distinguished Research Scientist Emerita
University of Michigan

“Disability Experience and Measurement.”

Abstract: Top themes of international research on disability in the past three decades are discussed: disability dynamics, buffers and barriers for disability, disability trends, and disability among very old persons. Each theme is highlighted by
research examples. Turning to measurement, I discuss traditional measures of disability, new longer and shorter ones, and composites like disability-free life expectancy, noting their merits. Contemporary models of disability are presented, ranging from visual images to formal theories. The article ends on how scientists can facilitate movement of disability science into health care practice and policy.

Location: The CUNY Graduate Center - 365 5th Avenue, Room 9204

Pre-Seminar: We will meet at NOON to have lunch with the speaker at the CUNY Graduate Center cafeteria (8th floor). Everyone is welcome to join the lunch at their own costs. 

Post-Seminar: CIDR fellows are strongly encouraged to meet with the speaker after the seminar to discuss her work further and consult about graduate school, research, job market, career, etc.
