Careers in Aging Week

Careers in Aging Week logo

April 2018 is UMBC’s Career Crush, a month-long initiative that brings the UMBC campus community together to provide both undergraduate and graduate students with opportunities to develop their professional skills and explore career options. In conjunction with Career Crush, the Erickson School is sponsoring a Careers in Aging week, April 2-6, 2018. The goal is to connect students to “Fields of Opportunities” with learning opportunities, networking with Erickson School Alumni, and other experiences associated with professions that are impacted by aging adults.

The Future’s So Bright: The Intersection of Technology and Aging
Today we utilize technology in nearly every facet of our lives. Countless individuals are connected 24/7 to the world at large through email, Skype, smartphones, laptops, tablets, and a myriad of other applications and devices. Yet, older adults living in senior living communities, particularly those individuals living with dementia, have been left out of this revolution. By highlighting real-world examples of multimedia technologies delivered through various adaptive computer systems, this presentation looks at how communities can help change that reality.
