Announcing an opportunity to submit an abstract or workshop to the International Conference on Communication in Healthcare which will be in Chicago in October:

The abstract deadline is March 31. If your work intersects with communication in healthcare (e.g., patient/physician, physician/physician, patient/community, inter-professional communication, professionalism, humanism, etc etc), we would encourage you to submit either an abstract or a workshop. Also, really good ideas (even if you don’t have data yet) often fare well in terms of getting accepted. The bottom line is that the milieu at this meeting is fantastic, there are often many of the folks who originated the field of healthcare communication walking around, and everyone is approachable. It is a great opportunity for networking and career advancement.

CFS: The Gerontologist (Aging Baby Boomers)

Call for Papers for a Special Issue of The Gerontologist: Not Your Mother’s Old Age: Baby Boomers at 65

This year the first of the Baby Boom cohort reached age 65 and for the next 19 years, close to 10,000 people a day will celebrate their 65th birthday. Baby Boomers redefined each stage of life as they experienced it, modifying fashion design and hair length as well as key societal institutions. They questioned the underlying values and attitudes of society. They influenced education, music, race relations, sex roles, and child rearing. They are about to change what we know about old age. Although the popular press has been fascinated with the aging of the Boomers, scholarly attention has been more limited. In an effort to further a multidisciplinary dialogue about the nature of aging, we invite authors to contribute original research papers as well as review papers focused on the aging of the baby boom generation. We particularly welcome papers that are conceptually based, methodologically sophisticated, and oriented toward policy and practice. Both papers focused exclusively on Baby Boomers and those contrasting Boomers with earlier cohorts are encouraged. Quantitative, qualitative, and mixed methods approaches are welcome, from humanities and arts perspectives, as well as those of science, practice, and policy.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, those that address:

  • The extent to which Boomers are a homogeneous group and the implications that this has for policy.
  • How the Boomers’ experiences with economic upheavals has influenced their aging process.
  • How shifts in work and retirement will influence the old age experienced by Boomers.
  • The family relationships of Boomers, including examination of patterns of care and assistance to older as well as younger family members.
  • Patterns of and experiences with healthcare usage.
  • The role of neighborhoods and communities as Boomers age.
  • The cross-cultural validity of the construct of “Baby Boomer”

Author Guidelines for The Gerontologist can be found at:

Manuscript formats include research articles, brief reports, forums, and practice concepts and policy analysis. Manuscripts should be submitted electronically at:
