Introduction to Gerontology

Introduction to Gerontology - GER131

In this course students will discuss a variety of definitions and concepts related to aging from a variety of inter-professional perspectives. Because today’s elders have a longer lifespan than ever before, such factors as health, housing, transportation, employment, finances, family and community support systems become important planning issues when working with older persons. These factors and others will be examined in this introductory course in gerontology.
