The American Society on Aging (ASA) is collaborating with USC Leonard Davis School of Gerontology to offer Health and Wellness in an Aging Society beginning October 19, 2015. 
 
During this five-week online certificate course, USC faculty members will discuss the common health issues faced by seniors, public health in an aging world, and the strategies for caring for older adults with various health challenges. Modules will cover demography, chronic diseases, self-care management, dementia and mental health issues, and medication management. 
 
This program is available exclusively to ASA members for the reduced tuition fee of $500. If you are not a member of ASA, and would like to register for Health and Wellness in an Aging Society, click here to join ASA now or you can join when you register.
