Sarah Jameson, PT, DPT, MS, GCS

Assistant Professor, Chatham University

It is my pleasure to serve as adjunct to the Gerontology faculty at Pacific University. I am a Geriatric Clinical Specialist and my chief clinical and academic interests focus on the “oldest-old”, people over 90. We well know that the oldest segment of the population is the fastest growing but the 2010 census has shown just how dramatically this group has grown.  The population of Americans 90 years old and older grew 29% in that decade compared to a 9.7% increase in the general population. I am currently working on a systematic review of the literature that profiles function in this population.

In addition to the specifics of the 90 plus age group I am interested in optimal aging, balance and fall prevention, and continuous care communities.

Outside of the classroom and clinic I enjoy reading, gardening, movies and travel.  I have a husband, 2 sons and a very large extended family that keep me happily if sometime frantically busy.
