Below are some of the many ways to connect with our Gerontology Office, Students, Graduates and Support.

The Gerontology Program Alumni Network (GPAN) was established in Fall 2018. Its mission is to connect with all Gerontology Program alumni to provide opportunities for networking and giving back to the program. Please contact Dr. Maria Carpiac.

The Gerontology Program is proud of the partnerships we have established - within the CSULB and Greater Long Beach community as well as globally!
