COAST-IT – Connecting Older Adults to Students Through Interprofessional Telecare

We are actively recruiting older adult participants

Many older adults may not have the opportunity to build a connection with a young adult. At the same time, health professional students in their first 1-2 years of training have lost opportunities to have interactions with older adult patients. The team at CU Anschutz, led by the CU Anschutz Multidisciplinary Center on Aging, hosts an outreach program where students from either the CU Anschutz School of Medicine, School of Pharmacy, College of Nursing or School of Dental Medicine programs will pair with an older adult to have weekly to bi-monthly social phone calls. 

Interested in Participating in COAST-IT?  We would love to have you!
