This diversity exists, in part, because older persons are different from each other in many ways. People working in the field of aging report great satisfaction in addressing the challenges of the elderly, helping to maintain the quality of their lives,and enjoying their wit, wisdom and creativity.
This 17-credit certificate is open to individuals interested in the field of aging including professionals in the health and human services, as well as non-professionals interested in learning about an aging population.
