    Dr. Caroline Cicero teaches Social Policy and Aging, Perspectives on a Changing Society: An Introduction to Aging, Women and Aging, as well as Behavior and Social Consequences of Design and Environment at USC Davis School of Gerontology. Her primary research and practice focus on the intersection of aging, urban planning, and service delivery in order to make local communities better places to grow old. In addition to her Ph.D. from the Davis School of Gerontology, Cicero has masters degrees in planning and social work. For the last 25 years, she has lived in the Los Angeles area, where her professional work includes senior care management, housing development, and policy planning in public, private, and nonprofit settings. Dr. Cicero also studies visual gerontology--the portrayal of aging in popular media, fine art, and the public square--which she incorporates into her teaching and public speaking.
