Visitor parking will be available at the nearby Dawkins Welcome Center (building 1). A remote attendance option will be available via Zoom; visit agec.uams.edu/community-events for that link.
The program is organized and supported by AGEC and Hendrix College. AGEC uses these education sessions to provide social support, activities and conversation for older adults and caregivers. Hendrix students collaborate with AGEC on various projects, experiences and internships focused on older adults as well.
The Arkansas Geriatric Education Collaborative is funded by a Health Resources and Services Administration grant of $3.7 million for a Geriatrics Workforce Enhancement Program.
