Dr. Charles Emlet: Developing an age-friendly Puyallup

May 10, 2021

After 25 years of social work practice in the field, much of which had been and still is centered around older adults and LGBTQ+ individuals, Dr. Charles Emlet came to UW Tacoma in 1999 and has been teaching social work practice, research methods, spirituality in social work and aging gerontology ever since. During our Feb. Collaboratory drive, we were able to reach out to and speak with Dr. Emlet about the work he’s doing in our community.
