The Division of Geriatrics and Gerontology is thrilled to announce that they will receive a Research Grants in the Arts award of $50,000 from the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA). This grant will support the project titled Community-based participatory evaluation studies on an Adaptango dance program for adults with Parkinson’s Disease (PD).

This program, led by Madeleine Hackney, PhD, Associate Professor of Medicine, in collaboration with Laura Emmery, PhD, Associate Professor of Music Theory at Emory’s College of Arts and Sciences, uses a modified traditional Argentine tango resulting in adapted tango (Adaptango), which accommodates movement needs of older adults with PD (PWP) or mild cognitive impairment (MCI).
