CEAH Newsletter December 2020

Warm Regards from the CEAH Team

On behalf of the CEAH team, I would like to wish you and yours a wonderful holiday season and a happy, healthy New Year! I am grateful for so much right now. The crises of this past year have taught me to be more patient, appreciative of everyday happenings, and thankful for the people and community all around. The world of “Zoom” has opened new doors for the CEAH to reach new friends and expand our training and research agendas. I have high hopes for 2021 even with the challenges that lay ahead. 
Best wishes.

Legacy Scholars Step Up
Kudos are due to the many Legacy Scholars who stepped up to serve as online “elder teachers” for UNE’s Interdisciplinary Geriatric Education Program (IGEP). The pandemic prevented student teams from visiting folks at home this year. Zoom provided a platform for new types of engagement and shared successes. Way to go Legacy Scholars!
