MetadataShow full item record
This article reprises four presentations on “Gerontology Education in Kenya,” a seminar at the 2004 Annual Meeting ofthe Association of Gerontology in Higher Education. It describes the process by which the Gerontology Institute of Georgia State University established a 3-year gerontology education and research partnership with Kenyatta University in Nairobi, Kenya, and the field experiences of two scholars who have conducted aging research in Kenya. We provide four key elements of cultural competence and recommendations for American gerontologists wishing to establish international linkages.
