Bio: Kathleen D'Alfonso is a Ph.D. student in the Department of Sociology at the University at Buffalo. Her research interests focus on the impact of a faster and increasing pace of social and technological change and its effects on aging (keeping in mind generational differences). In remaining attentive to the four dimensions of aging (chronological, biological, psychological, and social) and examining the barriers to healthcare, a cumulative intergenerational disadvantage is analyzed using a life course perspective.
