To be Held Feb. 25 in Eau Claire

 MAILED:  Feb. 18, 2004

EAU CLAIRE — The Center for Health and Aging Services Excellence at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire, along with UW-Stout and the Red Cedar Medical Center in Menomonie, will offer “Depression in the Older Person” as part of the second annual Gerontology Lecture Series.

The lecture will be held from noon to 1 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 25, at Marshfield Clinic-Oakwood Center in Eau Claire. Attendees are encouraged to park on the side streets surrounding the facility.

The session will explore timely topics relating to the field of gerontology and participants will learn about depression as a treatable medical illness. This workshop will help to raise awareness of depression in seniors, describe its varied symptoms and provide some ideas about resources for treatment and support.

This discussion will be led by Jennifer Johs-Artisensi, Ph.D., assistant professor of health care administration at UW-Eau Claire and Carrie Nelson, M.D. from the department of internal medicine at Red Cedar Medical Center in Menomonie.
