Geriatric Medicine Refresher Day

34th Annual Geriatric Medicine Refresher Day

Current and Practical Knowledge to Inspire and Advance Care

Western University, in consultation with the local Middlesex-London Health Unit, has announced that all discretionary events on campus and in the community with more than 50 people currently scheduled until at least April 30, 2020 must be cancelled, postponed or offered virtually. This is due to the changing nature and spread of COVID-19, and in an effort to minimize the potential risk to our attendees, faculty, staff and learners as well as community members. 

Therefore, after 33 years, due to the evolving COVID-19 situation, we have made the difficult decision to cancel the Geriatric Medicine Refresher Day on Wednesday May 6, 2020 at RBC Place London.  

This is one of many events in the coming weeks that the school now has to postpone or cancel. While it is disappointing to make this change, it is important that we minimize the risk for our attendees and the greater community.

Mark your Calendars for next year!  On Wednesday May 5, 2021 we will welcome back Teepa Snow,  founder of  Positive Approach® to Care, who is one of the leading educators on dementia care in the US and Canada.  She will start the day off with a high powered, engaging Morning Key Note Presentation on Dementia and will present two other practical workshops.  

Kindest regards and I sincerely hope you all stay healthy and safe during these difficult times.
