The Eastern Pennsylvania-Delaware Geriatric Education Center (EPaD GEC) mission is to provide interprofessional geriatric education in Northeast and Southeast Pennsylvania and Delaware. EPaD GEC consortium members (Thomas Jefferson University (TJU), Christiana Care Health System (CCHS), Marywood University (MU) and Philadelphia Senior Center (PSC)) are committed to improving the health and quality of life of older adults and their caregivers by translating new evidence and innovative practice models into practical curricula and programs. One of our educational goals is to develop a structured curriculum on geriatric topics that can be integrated into the educational curricula of multiple health disciplines.
