Stratton Lecture Series

Learn from MIT Experts on Successful Aging

For more than 30 years, the Women’s League has co-sponsored the Stratton Lecture on Successful Aging in honor of former MIT first lady and longtime league member Catherine M. Stratton.

Mrs. Stratton, fondly known to her fellow league members as Kay, was an energetic part of the MIT community for more than 75 years. She initiated the series on 1988 to explore issues affecting the health and wellbeing of aging adults.

A collaborative project of MIT Medical, the AgeLab, and the Women’s League, the lecture brings together MIT researchers and experts for a moderated panel discussion and audience Q&A.

We’re proud to continue this tradition, both to honor Kay Stratton and also to encourage all members of the MIT community to become informed health advocates for themselves and their families.
