Georgetown University’s Urban & Regional Planning program and McDonough School of Business are collaborating with Royal Philips, a diversified health and well-being company, to support the launch of the Aging Well Hub, a new research center for exploring innovations in healthy aging, Philips North America and the White House announced Monday at the White House Conference on Aging.
“Trends associated with aging are manifest in local communities,” said Uwe Brandes, executive director of the Urban & Regional Planning program at Georgetown’s School of Continuing Studies (SCS). “We look forward to collaborating with Philips and the McDonough School of Business to explore how new technologies can support responsible care and the formation of a meaningful quality of life in our towns and cities.”
SCS continues to monitor the COVID-19 situation and respond in support of the University community. Currently, all summer term courses will continue through distance instruction.
In terms of the Fall 2021 semester, the School of Continuing Studies will resume regular operations effective August 16 at the 640 Massachusetts Avenue building, unless otherwise noted for specific programs.
