UNE collaboration produces quality education
Lunder-Dineen continuously seeks opportunities to provide free, quality health education to Maine health care professionals. As part of our ongoing informal needs assessment, we looked to Marilyn R. Gugliucci, MA, PhD, AGHEF, GSAF, AGSF, professor and director of geriatrics education and research at the University of New England (UNE), to lend her expert advice on unmet health education needs. She introduced us to her work in planning and executing UNE’s Annual Maine Geriatrics Conference in Bar Harbor, Maine.

While approximately 250 clinicians from all professions attend this live conference, it’s a challenge for many others to attend due to budget restrictions, staffing issues, and travel distance. Since Lunder-Dineen and UNE have a collaborative goal to extend high-quality education to health care professionals across the state, we worked together to record, develop and disseminate key sessions that took place at their June 2013 conference.
2013 conference attendees
We are pleased to announce that we recently launched five new sessions in our course catalog from UNE’s June 2013 conference. These sessions feature expert speakers Leonard Brennan, DMD; Robert Anderson, Jr., MD; Susan Wehry, MD; Jitka Zgola; and Ricker Hamilton, BA, MSW.
The 2014 Annual Maine Geriatrics Conference is quickly approaching and registration is now open. All professionals interested in older adult health – including nursing, occupational and physical therapy, substance abuse, social work, mental health, and more – are encouraged to attend. Lunder-Dineen is excited to once again sponsor and attend the conference this year.
