In 2004, John E. Morley, editor of The Journals of Gerontology Series A: Biological Sciences and Medical Sciences, described his Top 10 Hot Topics in gerontology. Five years have passed, and while many aspects of life have changed at a very fast pace, in my opinion, the bulk of Dr. Morley's list still applies. Cognitive decline, depression, mobility, nutrition, frailty/sarcopenia, cardiovascular disease, and the immune system in aging all remain as significant influences in the geriatric population today. Consider all the ways that the practices of speech-language pathology and audiology can impact these issues, and how the identified issues make our practices with our patients that much more complex. We need to keep challenging ourselves to be the best professionals we can possibly be so that the clients we serve can achieve the best possible outcomes without aging as a barrier. What are the hot topics in gerontology based on your daily experience? And, how can Division 15 help you to address your issues in a meaningful way?
