Brian Mahoney

Mount Saint Mary College’s Center for Aging and Policy (CAP) will host Boomer Thunder: From Then to Now on April 19, 5 to 7:30 pm.

The public event will be held in Hudson Hall auditorium, on campus at 330 Powell Avenue, Newburgh, NY.

Keynote speaker Brian K. Mahoney, editorial director of Luminary Publishing and editor of Chronogram magazine, will speak on the demographic of midlife (35-65 years of age).

Mahoney oversaw the launch of Luminary Publishing's forays into the housing and alternative health markets— Upstate House and Metro House, and Healthy Living. He also directs the company’s custom content division, creating print and multimedia marketing vehicles for clients from Manhattan to Albany, including HealthQuest hospitals, Walkway Over the Hudson, Hudson Valley Greenway, and the Institute for Integrative Nutrition, among others.

Boomer Thunder will feature informal networking. Research by social sciences students will be on display.

The Center on Aging and Policy, directed by Lawrence Force, Mount professor of psychology, promotes an interdisciplinary perspective and is dedicated to excellence in research and scholarship in the field of gerontology. Routinely, Mount students are involved: e.g. through the Aging United student organization, with Rae Fallon, associate professor of psychology, serving as advisor.

The center also serves as a national resource for the Area Agencies on Aging (AAA’s) and explores, describes, and measures both formal and informal aging interventions of care within the public and private sector.
