On May 19th, 2023, geriatric care professionals from across our region descended upon Village Inn Event Center in Clemmons to attend the highly anticipated 2023 Geriatrics Conference hosted by Northwest AHEC. The air buzzed with excitement as attendees finally had the opportunity to meet face-to-face after years of virtual events due to the pandemic.
Governor Roy Cooper proclaimed that May is Older Americans Month which is wonderful as we have our Geriatric Conference coming up! There is still time to register.
