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.
