These free webinars discuss the need for more people prepared to work with older adults in Iowa. The target audience is people who are considering career options including: high school students, community college students, college students, and persons in the workforce considering a career change.
The webinar series is a collaborative project of the three public universities in Iowa: The University of Iowa, Iowa State University, and the University of Northern Iowa, and the Des Moines Area Community College.
You have the option of downloading the recordings or "streaming" them (watching them but not saving them to your computer). We strongly suggest streaming them because the files are so darn large.
