"Why You Need a Social Convoy" - Psychology Today. 6/30/2018.
Toni Antonucci discusses the social convoy model as a useful way to measure the complexity - and ultimately the importance - of close social ties over the life course. In a recent article in *The Gerontologist*, coauthored by Kristine Ajrouch and MiCDA colleague Kira Birditt, Antonucci notes that the social convoy model offers "a unique window into the most influential psychosocial aspects of human development" - an individual's social relations.
