AIG is a dynamic group of students from the Colleges of Allied Health, Medicine, Nursing, Pharmacy, Graduate Studies, and Public Health who organize and facilitate events with support from faculty advisors related to aging and older adults. The purposes of the Aging Interprofessional Group are as follows:
- The AIG aims to promote interdisciplinary healthcare that is essential to providing quality care to the geriatric population.
- The AIG recognizes a growing need for geriatric knowledge across medical care settings, and it aims to inform and elevate awareness of geriatric needs and issues that are unique to this population.
- The AIG aims to provide students of all disciplines with opportunities to interact with geriatric patients and to practice clinical skills as they relate to this population.
