Lifestyle Coordinator receives PhD
Pamela Bruder (Lifestyle and Life Enrichment Program Coordinator), has been juggling the demands of being a full-time student while working up to 4 days a week at Emmy for the past five years. Pamela has now completed her Phd
in Anthropology and Ageing. Pamela received support from management and the Board of Directors to study the program she was implementing at Emmy. Titled, “We Are Here – an ethnography of Old Age, Institutional Life,

our residents can continue to benefit from her wealth of knowledge.
