LECOM Health and the Lake Erie Integrated Geriatric Health Team (LIGHT) will be presenting a geriatric focused day of lectures on Thursday, March 4, 2021. The LECOM Virtual Primary Care 2021 Pre-Conference Workshop offers the opportunity to realign the clinical training experience to be consistent with transformative healthcare systems while improving collaboration within the healthcare team.
The Lake Erie Integrated Geriatric Health Team (LIGHT) is supported by a $4.4 million Geriatric Workforce Enhancement Program (GWEP) grant. The GWEP supports the development of a health care workforce that improves health outcomes for older adults by integrating geriatrics with primary care, maximizing patient and family engagement, and transforming the health care system. The Thursday, pre-conference workshop will consist of continuing education sessions for all levels of licensed health care professionals and will prepare them for certification in geriatrics through the certifying body for each discipline.
Registrants may participate in this pre-conference geriatric focused workshop on Thursday, March 4 from 12-5:15pm. This pre-conference workshop is an add-on to the standard registration option and provides five additional hours of CME credit.
