More about the conference
By 2030, an estimated 1 in 5 Americans will be older than 65 years of age. The size of the older adult population in the Southeast and other regions of the country poses unprecedented challenges for the broader health care workforce and placing new pressures on the overall health care system. These challenges reflect not only the increasing size of this diverse population, but also the unique medical and health care system requirements for persons living into their seventh decade and beyond.

The care of older adults requires a different approach and skill set for identifying and treating common geriatric problems. This course is designed to equip medical providers and other members of the multi-disciplinary health care team with basic and cutting edge knowledge for optimizing the delivery of services to the expanding older adult population.
