About Gerontology at FranU
Gero at FranU is a university initiative dedicated to providing Baton Rouge with relevant, up-to-date information regarding healthy aging practices and activities. We work to change the perception of aging and promote independent living within the geriatric community while acting as the authoritative voice for our state.
The privilege of reaching out to meet the needs of others.
