GSU Gerontology Celebrated Another Successful Careers in Aging Week (CIAW)

The GSU Alpha Omega Chapter of Sigma Phi Omega (gerontology honor society) sponsored a week of activities to promote the 2015 Careers in Aging Week.  The week began with two lunch and learn presentations.  On Monday, Hillary Thomas (AARP) and on Tuesday, Elizabeth Head (Georgia Department of Public Health).  On Tuesday, James Moorhead, Eugenie Stephenson, Megan Koepnick, and Debby Yoder staffed a table in library plaza to publicize Gerontology and Careers in Aging.  A dozens of students stopped by and many shared their thought by posing for a picture (see below).  The week culminated with our panel presentation on Thursday evening.  Walter Coffey (Leading Age Georgia), Abby Cox (Georgia Gerontology Society), Jamie Cramer (Gwinnett Senior Services) and Cindy Nelson (Nelson Elder Care Law) lead an informative discussion about succeeding professionally in the field of aging.
