UNO to Celebrate Careers in Aging Week April 10-14
Omaha - The University of Nebraska at Omaha (UNO) Department of Gerontology will celebrate Careers in Aging Week April 10-14 with a variety of activities. The national celebration is coordinated by the Association for Gerontology in Higher Education (AGHE). The 2006 theme is "I Will Make a Difference."
"The impending spike in the aging population presents UNO students who study aging the opportunity to make a difference in the lives of many – by working with elders, helping families and providers that care for elders, or taking account of elders in the conduct of their business or profession," said Lyn Holley, assistant professor of gerontology at UNO. "Careers in Aging Week is an especially good opportunity to get the word out to students about these opportunities."
Large posters featuring the 2006 theme will be posted on the UNO and University of Nebraska-Lincoln campuses.
On Thursday, April 13, faculty and students will host an exhibit from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. on the first floor of the Milo Bail Student Center. The display table will feature career brochures, laptops with streaming video, career-oriented giveaways, games and more.
UNO faculty in gerontology and related departments will offer an instructional package on careers in aging that can be presented during a class throughout the week. The package includes a five-minute slide presentation with a script and a 10-minute DVD produced by the AGHE.
