2017 Excellence in ElderCare Symposium: Shining A Spotlight on Healthy Aging

2017 Excellence in ElderCare Symposium: Shining A Spotlight on Healthy Aging on Friday, Oct. 20, 2017, from 8:00 am – 4:15 pm at Top of the Market Banquet Center.

The goal of the Excellence in ElderCare annual education series is to ensure that health care providers and informal caregivers are equipped with the necessary information to respond to the specific needs of the elder population while maintaining their own personal health.

Our program will shine a light on the health related and aging issues affecting the most rapidly growing population. The health care needs of persons as they age can be complex and for many older adults overwhelming.

Join us to learn more about key aspects of healthy aging. Our featured presenter will be Daniel Swagerty, MD, MPH, Professor and Chair, Wright State University Dept. of Geriatrics. Other speakers will touch on a range of topics from aging in place to pharmaceutical issues as well as spirituality as we age.

This program will provide 5.5 contact hours for those that register, attend and complete the evaluation form. Find more information in the Continuing Education Opportunities section to download the brochure/registration or call Sharon Becker at (937) 734-9452(937) 734-9452.
