Register for Event
The 2015 Center for Healthy Aging conference brings together multiple speakers with a variety of
backgrounds and topics that all encompass some part of the theme: Geriatrics, WHO cares and who
CARES? With the increasing number of older adults requiring our care, yet the increasing complexity
of the health care system, some days you wonder if anyone out there really cares about our older
adults. Then you look around and see the amazing work that individuals are doing who really do
care for and about this important group of people. We will be looking at the legislative level to see
what is being proposed for older adults, at a more local level in emergency rooms and nursing homes
to look at improving care and also at an individual level with use of technology, pharmacogenomics,
as well as some specific treatments for dementia and atrial fibrillation.
This conference is meant to enhance the knowledge base and skills of physicians, nurses, pharmacists,
psychologists, dietitians, allied health and rehabilitation therapists, social workers, health facility
administrators, and other interested health care professionals.
- Recognize ways in which changes in our health care system may affect how we care for older adults
- Identify novel approaches to care for dementia patientss
