Alaska Geriatric Education Center

The Alaska Geriatric Education Center (AKGEC) was established in 2003 with funding from the Health Resources and Service Administration Bureau of Health Professions. The national network of GECs is supported by the National Association of Geriatric Education Centers.

AKGEC is developing geriatric training opportunities and curriculum that celebrates Alaska’s unique history and cultural diversity. We work closely with the National Resource Center for American Indians, Alaska Natives and Native Hawaiian Elders (NRC) and are developing several training modules focusing on Alaska Native Elder issues. AKGEC is working closely with the Stanford Geriatric Education Center to collaborate on training and curriculum development.
