Panama is one of the top destinations for retiring U.S. baby boomers because of its climate, accessibility, cost of living and welcoming attitude. Kent State University lecturer Craig Zamary will travel to the Central American country this July to conduct research on ways U.S. companies can tap into the resources that these retirees represent.
Zamary of North Lima, a faculty member in Kent State’s College of Business Administration, plans to connect with both local residents and U.S. expatriates. His goal is to learn what opportunities may exist for U.S. companies and universities to utilize the knowledge and experience of U.S. citizens relocating in Panama.
Zamary is an approved Fulbright Specialist, and his monthlong research trip to Panama is a Fulbright-funded project. The Fulbright Program is the U.S. government’s flagship program in international educational exchange. U.S. faculty and professionals apply to join a Fulbright Roster of Specialists for a five-year term.
