Aging Interprofessional Group

Purposes of Aging Interprofessional Group

1.     The AIG aims to promote interdisciplinary healthcare that is essential to providing quality care to the geriatric population.
2.     The AIG recognizes a growing need for geriatric knowledge across medical care settings, and it aims to inform and elevate awareness of geriatric needs and issues that are unique to this population.
3.     The AIG aims to provide students of all disciplines with opportunities to interact with geriatric patients and to practice clinical skills as they relate to this population.

Activities have included: Guest speakers on geriatric topics; death and dying issues; Clinical Skills Lab; Health Fair; volunteer activities with the geriatric population; and an end of the year party.
