Geriatric Healthcare Series

Overview

Our long running lecture series brings easily accessible geriatrics education focusing on age- and dementia-friendly care to a wide range of primary care providers and health professions trainees across a vast geographic area, most of it rural and medically underserved. 

Each series coincides with the University of Washington’s Winter and Spring quarters and consists of 10 lectures delivered virtually each week for 10 weeks. Our lectures are recorded allowing participants to also participate on-demand or watching lectures on their own asynchronously. Our speakers are topic experts and well positioned to deliver the most up-to-date, clinically relevant evidence to our participants. Participants can obtain continuing education credits for both series.
