Every year, about 4 million 10th- and 11th-grade students take the PSAT/NMSQT®, which determines qualification for the National Merit® Scholarship Program and is good practice for the SAT. Students taking the PSAT/NMSQT have access to more than $230 million annually through the College Board’s scholarship partners.

 

Expert Reveals Data from a Recent Study Published in the Journal of American Geriatrics Society. Older adults who have increasing and unmet home-based needs or are reluctant to accept help may find themselves in an unsafe living situation. This refusal to accept support is not only dangerous for older adults, but it also weighs heavily on their families. Northwestern Medicine Geriatrics researchers set out to better understand this reluctant behavior by going directly to the source, adults aged 65 and older. The objective of this study was to understand the perspectives of older adults about accepting help at home and the fears related to the potential loss of independence.
