Geriatric Health Internet Series

for Healthcare Professionals & Students


Healthcare provider 

January 2nd - March 6th, 2018

5:00pm-6:30pm (MST) every Tuesday


We have partnered with the Northwest Geriatrics Workforce Enhancement Center to bring presenters that are nationally and regionally recognized faculty from the University of Washington.  The 10 week series will assist providers in developing and enhancing health promotion interventions to prevent disease and postpone further disability for the older adults they serve. This series will give community-based providers working in the field of aging the opportunity to access valuable information without having to travel a great distance.


Professional Continuing Education Credits are available for most disciplines

Requirements to host:  a venue/room for participants; an internet connection, PC and projector to show the streaming video; and a site coordinator to work with WyCOA.

Contact WyCOA if you would like to host the series:, (307) 766-2829
