Biomedical, Social, and Policy Frontiers in Human Aging
Spring 2023 - I would highly recommend taking this class with Professor Levy-Storms! The content is very interesting and the workload is manageable. Professor Levy-Storms is an engaging professor who cares a lot about the material and takes the time to learn each student's name. She is very approachable, helpful, and willing to provide feedback; she wants students to learn and succeed in this class. This course focuses on the interdisciplinary nature of aging, and she brings in guest lecturers a few times in the quarter from different departments. The assignments include 3 one page reflective journals, a policy memo, group debates, and a 10 page paper on an interview with an older adult. These are all manageable, though the quarter is backloaded, with more of the assignments in the second half of the quarter. There was one midterm and a final - each were 50 multiple choice questions and weren't cumulative. Overall, an A is doable and the TA graded nicely, but even more so I enjoyed this course and got a lot out of it. I would recommend this course!
