27th ANNUAL GERIATICS CONFERENCE: PEARLS OF GERIATRIC CARE

Over A Quarter Century of Quality Education

 

Friday, April 12, 2013
Ramada Oasis Convention Center
2431 N. Glenstone Ave, Springfield, MO 65803

 

PROGRAM DESCRIPTION AND TARGET AUDIENCE

The Education Center is pleased to present the 27th Annual Geriatrics Conference. Nationally renowned experts in the field of Geriatrics will present the latest concepts, approaches and treatments for our aging population. This one day conference with speakers, breakout sessions and several roundtable discussion topics is designed to enhance the knowledge of physicians, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, nurses, nursing home administrators, physical and occupational therapists, social workers, case managers and other interested health care providers. A wide range of topics will be discussed to enhance the care of aging patients.  

 

FACTS AND FIGURES

In recent years the elderly population has increased eleven fold, whereas the non-elderly have only increased three fold¹. Additionally, the U.S. Census Bureau projects the elderly population will reach 80 million in 2050, with as many as 1 in 5 Americans classified as elderly. Most of this growth is expected to occur during 2010 and 2030 as the “baby boom” generation continues to age².
