The 2018 Call for Workshops for the 40th Summer Institute on Aging is open! The 2018 conference sponsored by WVU School of Social Work will be held June 12-14, 2018 at Lakeview Resort & Conference Center in Morgantown, WV. The theme is “Adventures in Aging: Building Wisdom, Well Being and Wonder”
Below is some information about how to submit a proposal. The website http://sioa.wvu.edu has a lot of information about past conferences (see previous brochures under “conference archive”). In terms of our audience, we usually have mostly social workers, but also some nurses, licensed professional counselors, activities directors in nursing homes, and family caregivers. We offer the conference as part of an elective course in the WVU Gerontology Certificate program, so we also have undergraduate and graduate students in attendance at the Institute.
Proposals (90 minutes or 3 hours) will be accepted online at https://sioa.wvu.edu/2018-conference/presenters/ – the deadline is January 15, 2018.
Please share with interested persons! For additional information or questions, contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or 304-293-3280.
