With more than 35 million Americans over the age of 65 requiring additional products, services, and other types of support and care, gerontology is one of the fastest growing areas of social and medical sciences in the United States. To promote awareness of the issues and explore career opportunities in the field, the College of Nursing and Health Science programs in gerontology and assisted living administration, in conjunction with the Geronotological Association of America, offer Careers in Aging Day tomorrow.

The event runs from 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the SUB II Ballroom. The program offers a panel discussion on “Successful Aging: Issues and Answers for the 21st Century, Services, Needs, and Perspectives,” a career fair, an academic program fair, and opportunities for networking. Participants, including employers and gerontology experts in government, human services, assisted living, geriatric nursing, and education, provide insight into aging, aging services, and public policy.
