Study Updates

ORANJ BOWL data collection comes to an end.

Thank you for being part of this unique research panel. Since 2006, your willingness to share your personal experiences has enabled us to learn a great deal about the aging process and to understand how events such as Hurricane Sandy and the COVID-19 pandemic affect older people.

We will no longer reach out to schedule interviews, but by no means is our work done. We are analyzing the abundant information we have collected and will continue to write articles that will find their way to professional journals. ORANJ BOWL panel will continue to help pave the way for future generations of people to age successfully.
