Center for Social Gerontology

Director’s Welcome

Welcome to the Center for Social Gerontology’s website. This website is constructed to support the interests and needs of faculty, staff, students and community members who are interested in the older adult population in southeastern Georgia and elsewhere.

We hope you find this website helpful and thank you for your interest in the older adult population and those that support and serve them.

Love in Action – A Phone Reassurance Project

Love in Action was created to enhance meaningful social relationships to address isolation and loneliness, which is increasingly important during social distancing.

We are seeking adults to participate bi-weekly, 20-minute phone conversations with trained Georgia Southern University college students who have completed a criminal background check.

For more information about LIA, please contact us at or 912-478-0712

The LIA Project is supported and funded by the Rockin’ Out Alzheimer’s Disease Foundation and is led by a team of Georgia Southern University Faculty and Staff.
