About the Series:
The University of Washington Northwest Geriatrics Workforce Enhancement Center (NW GWEC), the School of Nursing and the Seattle Veterans Health Administration Geriatric Research Education and Clinical Center (GRECC) are partnering to bring a series of continuing education programs on geriatric health to health professionals in Washington, Montana, Wyoming and Alaska.
Nationally and regionally recognized NW GWEC faculty will present each topic and facilitate discussion. The series will assist providers in developing and enhancing health promotion interventions to prevent disease and postpone further disability for the older adults they serve. This series will give community-based providers working in the field of aging the opportunity to access valuable information without having to travel a great distance.
