UI Center on Aging to host Web seminar June 27 on older driver wellness
The University of Iowa Center on Aging, in partnership with UI Family Services,
will host a Web-enhanced training seminar from noon to 1 p.m. Thursday, June
27, in Room 103 in North Hall on the UI campus.
The seminar, "When Driving is a Problem: Talking to Families About
Difficult Decisions," was developed by the American Society on Aging,
with the National Resource Center on Aging and Injury. Vicki Schmall, Ph.D.,
gerontology specialist and president of Aging Concerns in West Linn, Ore.,
will lead the session.
The seminar will look at the dilemmas and decisions families face when concerns
arise about an older family member's driving safety. The presenter will discuss
suggestions for addressing concerns and approaching the older adult, as well
as how providers can support families as they face the issue of older adults
The seminar is free, but there is an $8 fee for professionals interested
in continuing education credits (CEUs). Credit is granted for an hour-for-hour
basis. A CEU registration and evaluation packet can be downloaded from the
