Do you enjoy helping the older lady who lives across the street from your parents? Do you have an affinity for nursing homes or caring for the elderly?

Then perhaps a career working with the aging population is right for you.

This week, the U is hosting a fair featuring career opportunities for students who desire to work with the elderly.

Tomorrow from noon to 2:30 p.m. in the Union Saltair Room, a panel will discuss potential opportunities for positions within the field.

The presentation is part of a weeklong nationally recognized event known as the “Careers in Aging Week.”

The event is sponsored by the U’s Gerontology Interdisciplinary program, the U Center on Aging and the W.D. Goodwill Initiative on Aging in the College of Social Work.
