Gero-Ed Center Recognizes Carol J. Sheets

Carol J. Sheets retired from the Department of Veterans’ Affairs on January 31, 2014, after more than 26 years of federal service. Sheets provided guidance and elevated the standard of social work practice at every level in the Veterans Health Administration (VHA). She also served on the Commission on Accreditation (COA) from 2010–2013 as the public member and was a passionate supporter of the Hartford Partnership Program for Aging Education (HPPAE).

Next Steps for HPPAE and CSWE

The Hartford Partnership Program for Aging Education–Veterans Health Administration (HPPAE-VHA) partnership is in full swing! This partnership implements the HPPAE program, a field-based model for training advanced level master’s social work students in geriatric competencies, in select VHA Geriatric Research, Education, and Clinical Center (GRECC) sites and non-GRECC VHA sites.
