  • Educational Programs – targeted to traditional students interested in gerontology and long-term care administration; to health professionals pursuing greater expertise in the care of older adults; to members of the clergy; and to lay individuals;
  • Volunteerism – a program to promote and facilitate volunteerism among seniors and to provide volunteer opportunities for community members interested in working with senior adults in the community;
  • Research – in geriatrics to collect pilot data, with the goal of obtaining federal funding for future research projects; and
  • Senior Activity Center – to promote physical health, community involvement, and continued personal development for seniors in the community.  The approach for the Senior Activity Center will be to engage seniors in physical activity, social networking, community outreach, and expression of lifelong artistic interests.
