Paul R. Willging Endowment Speaker Series and Scholarship Fundraiser

The Cause

The Paul R. Willging Endowment has been established to provide both student scholarship support and enhanced learning opportunities in the areas of aging related services and long term care. Scholarships will provide financial assistance to those students pursuing careers that will positively impact older adults in the management and delivery of care to the older adult population. Enhanced learning opportunities will be provided to students, faculty, health care practitioners and policy makers in the area of aging related services.

  • About Willging

    This Endowment is designed to further Dr. Willging’s lifelong commitment to serve the long term care needs of seniors. Dr. Willging died in May 2011 following more than 35 years of extensive experience in health care policy and management. He was dedicated to assuring that the nation’s health care delivery system and its workforce would be fully prepared and well-positioned to meet those changing needs.

    Dr. Willging brought this commitment to bear while holding the positions of President and CEO of the American Health Care Association, and with the Assisted Living Federation of America.  Toward the end of his professional career, he continued his focus on the special needs of older adults through his faculty assignments to The Johns Hopkins Center on Health and Aging, and the University’s School of Medicine. As a longtime resident of Howard County, he served on the Howard County Commission on Aging and contributed leadership to the Aging in Place Advisory Committee of the Howard County Office of Aging.

  • About the Speaker

    Dr. Sarah L. Szanton

    Sarah Szanton studies health disparities in older adults, working to eliminate health and quality-of-life differences for seniors across socioeconomic and racial lines. A goal of Dr. Szanton’s research is to help seniors “age in place.” Her efforts are designed to foster increased mobility and capability for individuals to successfully function in their homes for as long as possible, to avoid potential issues that might require costly hospitalizations or other out-of-home care, and to reduce the societal burden of age-related chronic disease.
