Newark, NJ Global consulting firm Sabre88, LLC, has recently unveiled its plans to fund a research study examining the sexual habits, perceptions and views of adults 65 and older in the Newark, New Jersey area. The initiative arrives as the organization continues to expand its capabilities in the areas of financial analysis, acquisition support and now research and development.
Research will be spearheaded by Rider Universityâ€™s Dr. Alison Thomas-Cottingham, a specialist in exploring and developing HIV interventions. Dr. Thomas-Cottingham has worked as a researcher at several organizations including Center for HIV/AIDS Educational Studies as a Project Director, National Pediatric AIDS Resource Center as a Child Psychology intern, University of Maryland, Department of Psychology as a research intern for Adolescent Pathways Project. She has been actively imparting knowledge at the Department of Psychology, Rider University, Department of Psychology, Montclair State University, Department of Psychology, and Binghamton University teaching several courses including Developmental Psychology, Statistics and Research Design and Race, Class and Gender in Contemporary American Society and Behavior modification.
The anticipated survey expects to reveal the nature of, common themes, and perceptions among sexually active adults over the age of 65. There is growing concern regarding the needs of a rapidly expanding elderly population, particularly in New Jersey one of the most elderly populated states in the nation. Dr. Thomas-Cottingham, in conjunction with Sabre88, hope to weigh in on the topic with new research in a seldom studied area.
â€œAs we continue to grow we are excited to develop this partnership with local universities to examine this burgeoning and highly influential group,â€ said Robert Cottingham, Jr. Chairman and CEO of Sabre88. â€œWe are excited to learn of the finding of this study and know that its impact will create long lasting change.â€
