Continuing Professional Development & Education
The Center on Aging and MAGEC sponsor many continuing education opportunities for professionals, such as the Summer Institute, the MAGEC Fellowship, and the Distinguished Lecture series. In addition, the CoA and MAGEC co-sponsor other events geared to a variety of audiences-students, faculty members, and the general public-such as the Minnesota Gerontological Society Annual Conference among others. Many offer continuing education credit for professionals in various fields.
