By Staff

Jacqueline (Jackie) Jones, associate professor in the College of Nursing’s Division of Informatics, Health Systems & Leadership, recently visited the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in Atlanta for the annual meeting of the Health Aging Research Network (HAN), which is part of the CDC.

Jones is the only HAN member from the college and is one of only three nurses in the U.S. who participate in HAN.

The Anschutz Medical Campus is a HAN satellite site that is located in the Colorado School of Public Health. HAN partners include AARP, the American Medical Association and other groups. Jones is part of the HAN Mobility Work Group that conducts outcomes-focused research into aging and living arrangements to try to help older people live as independently as possible in the community in which they live.
