Geriatrics Interest Group (GIG)

Our Mission

In addition to following the guidelines set forth by the American Geriatrics Society Students, our chapter aims to organize campus-wide activities across medical, physical therapy and physician assistant health professions programs. Our focus will be on education and service in the context of interdisciplinary, evolving care. Representatives from each discipline will be encouraged to combine proposed activities that can benefit the community while encouraging widespread involvement.
