UT to host Feb. 26 workshop on aging solutions

The University of Toledo’s Department of Social Work will host a three-hour workshop, “Engaged Lifestyle: A Solution to Cognitive Aging?” on Friday, Feb. 26, 2010, at UT.

The program takes place from 8:30 a.m. to noon in the College of Health Science and Human Services Multipurpose Room on Main Campus.

Dr. Sudershan Pasupuleti, UT associate professor of social work and Hartford Geriatric Faculty Scholar, will present preliminary observations from the Brain Fitness Program study, in addition to the emerging evidence on improving cognitive function in older adults. The study is being conducted in tandem with more than a dozen senior centers and senior housing facilities in northwest Ohio. The study addressed the effects of computerized stimulation exercises on cognitive functioning.

In addition, panel discussion will include area geriatric experts, including: Tina Skeldon Wozniak, Lucas County Commissioner; Dr. Barbara Gunning, director of health services, Toledo-Lucas County Health Department; Dr. Barbara Kopp Miller, director, Center for Successful Aging; Billie Johnson, president, Area Office on Aging, Northwest Ohio Region; Salli Bollin, executive director, Alzheimer’s Association of Northwest Ohio; Dr. Terry Cluse-Tolar, chair, UT Department of Social Work, and Pasupuleti.

The workshop is offered in collaboration with the Area Office on Aging, Northwest Ohio Region, and the UT Center for Successful Aging.

Participants are eligible to earn three continuing education units in social work for their attendance. The charge for those seeking CEUs is $15; others will be admitted free of charge.
