GeroNet and Health & Business of Aging
GeroNet is the VCU Department of Gerontology's program to connect students with alumni with the purpose of professional identity development. Our alumni are engaged in diverse sectors of the aging services work force. When students connect with alumni, they are able to see a clearer path for how to operationalize their classroom learning in the community.
The Health and Business of Aging is an event that took place in January of 2015 in Williamsburg, Virginia. Over the course of two days, nearly 150 students, alumni and community partners participated in educational programs, networking and strategic planning for Virginia's historic triangle region.
