Case Studies from Age in Action

Case Studies from Age in Action

 

Age in Action is a 20-page quarterly published jointly by the VCU School of Allied Health Professions Virginia Center on Aging and the Virginia Department for Aging and Rehabilitative Services. Its target audience includes professionals in the field of aging, gerontologists, geriatricians, health professionals and administrators, adult home and community professionals, and others interested in aging-related education and research in the Commonwealth of Virginia.

The leading feature of the newsletter is the case study which appears in each issue. These case studies are developed based on current issues, opportunities, and concerns affecting older adults.
