Areas of Interest
Older adult health and wellness
Lisa Juckett, MOT, OTR/L, CHT, is currently a part-time PhD student within the College of Social Work. Although an occupational therapist by training, Juckett has embraced the field of social work due to her interest in identifying factors that influence the onset of health conditions among older adults. Juckett’s specific research interests include effective strategies for nutrition program implementation among the food insecure older adult population. To promote the field of gerontology among future practitioners and researchers, Juckett has served as Student Chair of the Association of Gerontology in Higher Education since 2016.
