About the Geriatric Education Program

Older adults deserve to be treated with dignity and respect, and merit care from knowledgeable, compassionate healthcare professionals. The Charlotte AHEC Geriatric Education Program collaborates with geriatric-focused community partners, organizations, and professionals to offer continuing education workshops designed to encourage patient-centered care among the geriatric population.

Through the partnership with the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and the implementation of The Carolina Geriatrics Workforce Enhancement Program (CGWEP), Charlotte AHEC addresses the needs of elders, families, and caregivers by developing and integrating geriatrics and interprofessional teamwork into primary care systems in Charlotte and the eight surrounding counties.
