If you are interested in getting an education in gerontology I have just become aware of a program that offers programs in elder law and gerontology and will benefit professionals working in nursing, gerontology, social work, psychology, paralegal, or related health and human services fields.

Anyone working with the elderly should consider considering this new program at the Judith Herb College of Education of Health Science and Human Service at The University of Toledo. The on line program will give you the knowledge and tools to have a better awareness and understanding of the unique legal rights and responsibilities related to older adults.  This certificate will assist persons working in nursing, gerontology, social work, psychology, paralegal, or related health and human services fields, in enhancing their credentials.  You can contact them at

Director and Program Advisor below.
