I’m Karisha Solomon.

I’m a Gerontologist with a passion for inspiring people to live their best lives.

What is gerontology? (thanks www.USC.edu)

Gerontology, as defined in the Merriam-Webster dictionary, is “the comprehensive study of aging and the problems of the aged.” Many people confuse gerontology with geriatrics. Whereas geriatrics focuses strictly on the medical conditions and disease of aging, gerontology is a multidisciplinary study that incorporates biology, psychology, and sociology. Because gerontology deals with multi-faceted aspects of aging, gerontology professionals can be found in a variety of industries including health care, government, nonprofits and the business community. Every course and career has been concentrated on the aging population giving me special training and tools.
