Sara Honn Qualls Sara Honn Qualls is a clinical psychologist who has been on faculty at the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs teaching psychology and gerontology, conducting research, and building a doctoral program in the psychology of aging since 1984. As the Director of the UCCS Gerontology Center, she coordinates the UCCS-Palisades collaboration.

Her own aging parents live in Champaign, Illinois where she grew up. Life is always engaging and interesting, sometimes entertaining, and never boring.
