Call for the NICE Student Poster Competition
The National Initiative for the Care of the Elderly is sponsoring a student poster competition at the Annual NICE Knowledge Exchange 2011.
Students will have the opportunity to participate in a poster competition, presenting their graduate studies and/or research in aging. All submitted abstracts will be reviewed and successful applicants will be notified to present their poster to the audience during a 'poster viewing' session during the Annual NICE Knowledge Exchange, May 19, 2011.
Teresa Rivera-Mildenhall who manages the CCAC’s Respite Relief Program (described below) is looking for a student to do some research. The research would look at how elder mediation would assist families in conflict to resolve their differences and respect their loved one's wishes to live at home.
Please contact Teresa directly if you are interested.
