Partnering with GWEPs in Dementia Caregiving & Education: Opportunities for Public Health

When:  Dec 7, 2023 from 11:00 AM to 12:00 PM (CT)

The goal of Geriatric Workforce Enhancement Programs (GWEP) is to educate and train the primary care and geriatric workforce to care for older adults. Thanks to this, GWEPs can be key partners in public health dementia-related efforts and can help build a diverse and skilled workforce that can support both the person with dementia and their family caregivers. This session will explore opportunities for public health departments in collaborating with GWEPs in their dementia caregiving initiatives, and will present examples of state-based partnerships in Georgia and Rhode Island. Join to learn about their work and get ideas for partnering with a local GWEP near you.
