CFR’s Drs. Steven Beach and Ron Simmons delivered their Regent’s Charter Lectures April 6. The lectures are part of the celebration of those named as Regent’s Professors by the Board of Regents of the University System of Georgia. Dr. Simmons was appointed as a Regent’s Professor last year and Beach this year (read more about Beach’s recent appointment here).
In these online lectures, Beach describes recent work at CFR with special attention to the ProSAAF intervention designed to help protect Black families (couples and kids) from the negative effects of financial strain on the family and individuals. Simmons explains the effort to better understand biological aging as a precursor to improving outcomes for individuals.
