Cherie Rosemond, PhD
Dr. Rosemond brings to the Gillings School almost three decades of experience working on the social, physical and political aspects of aging in the United States. Cherie views later life as a time for continued growth, contribution and vitality. As such, she is a champion of interdisciplinary, intergenerational, community engagement as a way to ensure homes and neighborhoods are great places for people of all ages to live. She also focuses attention on the arts and humanities as a way to expand and re-imagine new possibilities for later life.
Since 2012, Dr. Rosemond has served as a consultant to the Orange County Department on Aging. In this capacity, she has worked with a team of aging services providers, UNC students, and community members to develop and implement Orange County’s Master Aging Plan. Her focus areas include senior housing, transportation and care-giving.
In her free time, Cherie loves to dance, bike and make beauty out of second-hand “stuff.”
