Ewen, Whiteacre Selected as 2022-24 CAC Faculty Fellows

The University of Indianapolis Center for Aging & Community is pleased to present Heidi Ewen, associate professor and director of the Healthcare Administration Program and Liz Whiteacre, associate professor of English, as the newest CAC Fellows.  

The University of Indianapolis Center for Aging & Community (CAC) Fellowship is an ongoing, two-year, collaborative fellowship program that supports faculty from across UIndy in leveraging expertise through innovative approaches to meeting the needs of older adults. The goal of the fellowship is two-fold: to provide Fellows with an opportunity for applied research that will extend their expertise into the area of aging, and to enhance or create services, programs, education/training, or business processes in order to support healthy aging.

Ewen and Whiteacre will work with CAC and its community partner CICOA Aging & In-Home Solutions over a two-year period to develop projects that will provide the fellows with an opportunity for applied research that will enhance or create services, programs, education/training, or business processes in order to support healthy aging. 

The two faculty will join current CAC Fellows Kara Cecil, assistant professor of public health, and Rebecca Sorley, professor of music, who are currently seeking funding for their projects related to identifying the needs of older adults providing kinship care and the health benefits of music therapy, respectively.
