A paper co-authored by FACS graduate student Kyle Bower has quickly become the second most-viewed paper in the history of The Clinical Gerontologist journal.

Bower, a fourth year doctoral candidate in the human development and family science department, co-authored a paper, “Providing competent and affirming services for transgender and gender nonconforming older adults” that appeared in the August 2016 issue of the journal.

Bower’s research focuses on how marginalized populations, specifically individuals who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender/nonconforming (LGBT), negotiate formal and informal care options in late life.

Earlier this year, Bower received the Goebel-Macklin Award, presented to a promising graduate student at the Groves Conference on Marriage and Family.
