Volunteers for UA College of Medicine Healthy Aging Round Exercise
Education is a vital component of our mission "to promote long, healthy and functional lives for older adults". As people live longer it is especially important that their health care providers are given the knowledge they will need to give quality care to aging adults.
- Students in the fields of medicine, nursing, pharmacy, social work, and public health are provided this information through our academic Aging Studies Program.
- Practicing health care professionals are updated on the latest information through our continuing education programs and informational websites.
- Ancillary health providers, such as certified nursing assistants, certified medical technicians, patient care technicians and many more are given this important information in training workshops held at locations throughout the state.
Health care providers can't do it all. It's also important for adults to make sure they are active partners in their own healthcare - having the knowledge to make the right lifestyle decisions and healthcare choices to take better care of themselves and their loved ones. The Arizona Center on Aging provides this education to our community through speaking engagements and annual events such as our Community Aging Forums and Healthy Aging Expo.
