Age in Action - Winter 2019
Jan 16, 2019
The Winter 2019 issue of our quarterly publication, Age in Action, is now available. It begins with a case study describing the Senior Mentoring program at the VCU School of Medicine that pairs medical students and community older adults. There are also editorials on loneliness in later life and on using microlearning training modules to help practitioners communicate the painful diagnosis of dementia to patients and their families. There are pieces on the recent Hack for Caregiver Health where students from seven colleges competed to create workable apps in 24 hours to help caregivers; the MIND diet; Age Wave updates; the Joyful Voices choir movement for people with dementia; the relocated annual meeting of the Southern Gerontological Society; and much more.
