Omaha - The University of Nebraska at Omaha’s (UNO) Department of Gerontology’s annual Dr. Chuck Powell Memorial Lecture Series will feature a husband-and-wife team of guest speakers in the month of September.
Paul Hogan and Lori Hogan, co-founders of Home Instead Senior Care, will speak at the UNO College of Public Affairs and Community Service Commons on Friday, Sept. 7 and Wednesday, Sept. 19, respectively. On Sept. 7, from 1:30 to 2:30, Paul Hogan will discuss how to pair entrepreneurship and the aging population. On Sept. 19, from 1 to 2 p.m., Lori Hogan will discuss how to prepare oneself for a job after college and what employers are looking for in prospective employees.
Home Instead Senior Care was founded in 1994 by the Hogans and, today, is the largest franchise network of senior care businesses in the world. Paul Hogan has served as a delegate to the White House Conference on Aging and is a new member of the World Economic Global Agenda Council on Ageing while Lori Hogan serves on the boards of Family First Nebraska, the Nebraska State Chamber of Commerce and the Home Instead Senior Care Foundation.
