The Center on Aging at the University of Vermont is pleased to support the 2013 Gerontology Symposium. The goal of the symposium is to provide current research based information on topics relevant to the broad range of health and service providers who work with Vermont’s diverse and rapidly growing population of older adults.
The theme of creativity is designed to inspire new ideas and ways of working with your clients and co-workers and hopefully including some fun along the way. The day kicks off with an inspiring keynote by Dr. Susan Krauss Whitbourne, Professor of Psychology, University of Massachusetts Amherst, who will talk about her research on cognition and brain plasticity. Professor Whitbourne has conducted extensive research on happiness, positive psychology, and successful aging.
Other sessions include The Elder Art Project, Memoir Writing, Embracing the End of Life, Art Therapy, Grandparents Raising Grandchildren, Normal Aging and Examining the Use of Antipsychotics in Long-Term Care. There will be opportunities to interact with colleagues from numerous Vermont organizations that provide services to older adults, and to learn from each other.
The Mission of The Center on Aging at the University of Vermont is to forge an ongoing collaboration among faculty, students, staff, and programs within the University of Vermont, Fletcher Allen Health Care, and the Vermont community to promote a sense of well being and a high quality of life for older adults. The Center seeks to engage interested parties who wish to partner in the development and execution of programs that facilitate the health and welfare of older adults.
