Take our "Needs Assessment Survey"Help Us with our Needs Assessment Survey

Have you attended the Summer Geriatric Institute or any other CME program presented by the Gateway Geriatric Education Center (GEC)? Have you read an issue of Aging Successfully? Ever used a SLUMS assessment tool, SLU GEMS, or viewed the Fall Prevention in Nursing Homes or Fall Risk Assessment videos? All of these were brought to you by the Gateway GEC and funded by grants.

In order to maintain this funding a periodic needs assessment must be completed. Please take a few minutes out of your busy day and use the link below to complete the 2014 GEC Needs Assessment so that we may continue to bring you the great Geriatric education you have come to expect from the GEC and Dr. John Morley.
