The CourAGE to Care
Do You Have The CourAGE to Care?
The department of gerontology launched an outreach campaign to attract new and returning students to pursue an education in aging. The campaign entitled, The CourAGE to Care, will feature students, alumni and community agencies who have The CourAGE to Care. We want others to see what we see – The CourAGE to Care in action! We look forward to sharing students, alumni, and agencies stories with you.
