SAAS at Common Time – October 16th

The first Common Time of the fall semester is on Wednesday, October 16. SAAS has been working to put together two interesting workshops relevant to the day’s theme of connections in social work. There also is a aging specific workshop sponsored by the Office of Career Services. Information about these workshops is listed below. We would love to see a strong turnout for these workshops, as we feel that they focus on important topics within gerontological social work. 
If you have any questions or concerns about these workshops, please email us at hcsaas at gmail dot com. We hope to see you there!

Sex and Aging  
2:00 pm to 2:45 pm, Room 218
It’s not easy to have “the talk” with older clients. Jenni Griffith, Program Manager, Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, will help you engage older clients about sexuality (including LGBTQ populations).   

Log on! Selfhelp’s Virtual Senior Center
3:00 pm to 3:45 pm, Room  322
These sassy seniors stay social through technology. Scott Code, Director of Client Centered Technology, explains the Center and its programming and will even log on to the site for a Q & A with a member of the Center!
