Dr. Ying-Ling Jao will serve in the Distinguished Honors Faculty Program in the Schreyer Honors College at the Pennsylvania State University from August 2018 through May 2020. During these two years, she will implement a program entitled, “Inspiring Young Scholars through the Study of Older Adults”. Dr. Jao plans to engage students in learning activities that provide opportunities to increase their knowledge, empathy, and comfort with interacting with older adults. The program will culminate with field trips to long-term care settings, whereby honors students will engage in meals and other activities with older adults residing in these care communities.
Congratulations to Dr. Jao for being selected to serve in this capacity with the Schreyers Honors College, and to the honors students and older adults that will gain the benefit of this wonderful learning experience!
