Championing Careers in Aging – May CARE Connections

Healthcare professionals who work with older adults are sleuths who dig deep to understand their patients. They collaborate across disciplines to support individuals’ health and improve care systems.

Read how four professionals across disciplines describe careers in aging in the May issue of CARE Connections, the monthly newsletter of the SoN’s Center for Aging Research and Education. Here’s an excerpt:

“My favorite thing is to make something out of a puzzle. I really like digging into the charts and looking at why patients are here, being able to tell the nurse what I found, and putting the picture together. Bedside nursing just doesn’t have the time to do that.”

This month’s CARE Connections also includes an article on CARE’s impact; a profile of CARE Affiliate Carey Gleason, PhD, MS; and news related to older adult health and well-being.
