ATSU leads educational participation in Governor’s Conference on Aging

June 8, 2006
Posted In: ASDOH, ASHS

MESA, Ariz. (June 8, 2006 ) – A.T. Still University (ATSU) recently completed participation in the Governor’s Conference on Aging 2006, and was the lead institution of higher education in delivering influential presentations to the Arizona community on geriatric care and health while also offering free health screenings.

“Working with the Governor’s Office to benefit geriatric healthcare and aging is an important partnership beneficial to the entire state,” says Craig Phelps, D.O., and Provost of the ATSU-Mesa campus. “We are developing a new generation of health professionals with a passion for improving the quality of life for older adults.”

The theme of the biannual Governor’s Conference on Aging 2006 was Life Transitions and featured world renown broadcaster and journalist Hugh Downs, as well as Governor Janet Napolitano herself sharing her vision for Arizona’s aging population.

ATSU’s Arizona School of Dentistry & Oral Health delivered a presentation titled, “Age-Related Dental Problems,” that covered age-related changes in the mouth and other oral health concerns related to older adults. ATSU’s Arizona School of Health Sciences presented “Working with Your Healthcare Specialist,” which featured the Physician Assistant, Physical Therapy and Occupational Therapy departments leading the Collaborative In-Home Post-Stroke Care program and the Audiology department leading the popular program, “Addressing the Myths and Realities of Hearing Loss.”

Health screenings featured evaluations on hearing, skin cancer, blood pressure, oral health and fall prevention.

“The future of our Arizona Health & Technology Park adjacent to the ATSU-Mesa campus incorporates a residential village where our students will be able to care for and interact with mature adults in a real-life environment,” Phelps says.
