Ensuring safe mobility for older residents is something Tom Meuser is very passionate about, so having the opportunity to serve on a panel of researchers for an organization dedicated to the same mission is a perfect fit.
Meuser, director of the Gerontology Graduate Program at the University of Missouri–St. Louis, has been appointed to Independent Transportation Network America’s Research Group. ITN America is a door-through-door transportation service with affiliate branches all over the United States. Members receive dignified transportation in private cars as opposed to senior buses and vans which carry a certain stigma. The local affiliate, ITN St. Charles, was established in 2006.
