Management Team from Los Angeles Department of Aging Completes USC Davis/ASA Gerontology Course

"Innovative online courses presented by the USC Leonard Davis School of Gerontology and the American Society on Aging provided members of the Los Angeles Department of Aging management team with valuable evidence-based aging knowledge," said Department General Manager Laura Trejo.

Trejo, who graduated from USC in 1982 and returned to receive her Master of Science in Gerontology and Master of Public Administration in 1987, said her team was able to immediately apply what they learned in the course to their vital work serving the older adults of Los Angeles.
