A study of 119 undergraduates (22 business majors, 30 psychology, 37 nursing, 30 occupational therapy) found no significant differences in attitudes toward the elderly by major or age group (18-22 vs. 23 and over). Younger students were significantly more concerned about their personal aging than those over 22. (SK)
