Positive Aging Consortium at MTSU
Due to the rising cases of the COVID-19 Delta variant, the Positive Aging Conference has been postponed until June 10, 2022.
The 35th Annual Middle TN Geriatric Update Conference will be held virtually on October 8, 2021.
The COVID-19 pandemic has revealed the critical importance of social connections, outreach and the need to engage, empower, and educate caregivers as well as the direct care workforce to promote resilience and recovery. The proposed curriculum will address COVID-19 response and recovery, behavioral health support, community health collaboration, provider resilience, and telehealth implementation through a lens of health equity and diversity, leveraging existing partnerships and trusted messengers.
About PAC at MTSU
The MTSU Positive Aging Consortium was established in April 2019 and brings together faculty from numerous programs, departments, and colleges who have expertise and research interests in the area of aging and older adults. Community partners were added to the Consortium membership in 2020. The Consortium provides opportunities for partnership and collaborative research, education and service in support of positive aging. The purpose of the Positive Aging Consortium is to bring together participants from MTSU, community partners, and individuals who provide services to aging and older adults to focus on framing aging from a place of positivity rather than decline.
