Careers in Aging 2016 Photos

Careers In Aging Day, 2016


The Careers in Aging Forum was an exciting discussion of careers students can pursue with older adults.  The event was attended by over 100 students.  Six panelists presented a diversity of professions that are in the field of aging at Cleveland State University. The aging of America's population is creating a shortage of people trained to meet the unique needs of older adults. This event helps to steer students toward a booming aging industry!


Thank You to Encore Rehabilitation Services for their sponsorship of the event!
