Scholarly & Professional Interests

Primary scholarly and professional interests are in the field of gerontology, specifically researching the role of informal caregivers for the aging. Carolyn also serves as chairperson of the advisory board for the Suffolk County Office for the Aging. She is a founding member of the Gerontology Professionals of Long Island, and serves as a member of the ethics committee for Maria Regina Long-Term Care Residence.


"What drew me to St. Joseph's College many years ago was the opportunity to teach adults about the field of aging. What held me for all these years was the synergy I experienced between the Community and Culture of the College, and the exceptional adult students who have passed through the programs and moved on to becoming leaders in their professions."
