The Western Reserve Geriatric Education Center (WRGEC) received full funding for the next 5 year grant cycle, which will carry the WRGEC activities through to 2010.

By | October 14, 2005

The funding allows the WRGEC to pursue three themes of interest as determined by a needs assessment distributed last fall to past program participants. The three theme areas include geriatric palliative and end-of-life care, geriatric mental health care, and reducing disparities in geriatric care. Included within these themes are activities that will expand curriculum on cancer and aging, determination on capacity in mental health care, and a faculty development program on palliative care. An addition was also made to the consortium which consists of Case Western Reserve University (headquarters), Northeastern Ohio Universities College of Medicine, Ohio University College of Osteopathic Medicine, Miami University, and now Medical University of Ohio (formerly Medical College of Ohio). Congratulations to Dr. Julia Rose and her staff at the WRGEC!Dr. Julia Rose
