Older adults are among the fastest growing age group in the United States (US) and use many health care services, have complex conditions, and require professional expertise to meet their health care needs. With this increase in the older adult population, there is increased demand for healthcare professionals with specialized training in geriatrics.

WE HAIL strives to close this gap by educating more healthcare professionals into caring for older adults based on their needs. This will also foster interest towards working with geriatric populations to prepare for their growing population.

WE HAIL uses several tools and methods to develop geriatric patient-focused, evidence-based tools for health care professionals providing primary care in Tarrant County and across rural communities throughout Texas. Through our partnerships, training opportunities offer a wide variety of continuing medical education credits.
