"The Ohio Valley Appalachia Regional Geriatric Education Center (OVAR/GEC) is a consortium of the University of Kentucky, University of Louisville, University of Cincinnati and East Tennessee State University. Our mission is to provide geriatric training for service providers, faculty, and students and to develop educational materials on issues concerning working with older adults.
On January 4, 2011, President Barack Obama signed into law the National Alzheimer’s Project Act (NAPA), requiring the Secretary of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) to establish the National Alzheimer's Project. Under this new law, the OVAR/GEC, in partnership with Sanders-Brown Center on Aging and other university and community agencies, was funded by HHS to provide CE/CME training at no charge for health and social services providers across the region.
On behalf of the OVAR/GEC, our partners, and the older persons we serve, thank you for your interest in enhancing your knowledge about Alzheimer’s disease! We appreciate your willingness to complete the HRSA registration form, one that makes possible the continuation of funding for these free educational offerings."
