Geriatrics Training and Education (GTE) Initiative
The General Assembly of Virginia established GTE to develop the skills and capacities of the gerontological and geriatric work force. The Virginia Center on Aging, at Virginia Commonwealth University, serves as administrator of the GTE appropriation. Grants usually produce training projects, conferences, or similar educational programs.
