Remembering former Aging Studies PhD student Dr. Kevin Hansen


Kevin Hansen, PhDIt is with great sadness that we mourn the death of Dr. Kevin Hansen, who obtained his PhD from the School of Aging Studies in 2015 under the mentorship of Dr. Kathy Hyer. Dr. Hansen came to USF with a law degree and a great pedigree of knowledge and experience which he applied immediately. While a PhD student, he taught Ethical and Legal Aspects of Aging, teaching undergraduate students about social issues, elder abuse, and neglect. At the time of his death, Dr. Hansen was Associate Professor and Chair of the Department of Health & Aging Services Leadership at Bellarmine University. Kevin was a fun-loving, smart individual that everyone wanted to be around. He made friends easily and maintained many of the relationships he established while in the School of Aging Studies until his sudden death.
