HPPAE Expands to Four New VA Sites


In partnership with the Veterans Health Administration, the Gero-Ed Center hosted successful Hartford Partnership Program for Aging Education (HPPAE) orientations at four new VA sites in Fall 2014. The new sites included the Ralph H. Johnson VA Medical Center in Charleston, SC and Geriatric Research, Education, and Clinical Centers (GRECCs) in Durham, NC; Pittsburgh, PA; and Nashville, TN. These sites will be implementing HPPAE, a field-based educational model that prepares students to work in a variety of geriatric settings, in 2015. To date, the Gero-Ed Center has hosted HPPAE orientations at 12 GRECC sites and three VA hospitals.
