by Michelle Saport  |   

University of Washington Northwest Geriatrics Workforce Enhancement Center (NW GWEC), the UW 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. The UAA Alaska Center for Rural Health and Health Workforce will be coordinating the series for Alaska.

Each class will be online weekly from Jan. 7, 2020-March 10, 2020, Tuesdays from 3-4:30 p.m. AKST via the University of Washington Zoom Platform to Western Washington regional hospitals and sites in Montana, Alaska and Wyoming.

Nationally and regionally recognized NW GWEC faculty will present each lecture 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.

Registration in Alaska - $50 for entire series. Attend as many sessions as you like. Optional CEU's available for an additional $45. (Retirees and students that do not need credits or certificates, don't need to register and can attend for FREE!)
