Seniors Outreach promotes community engagement between healthcare professional students and isolated seniors in the community. Our club aims to improve the quality of life of seniors while providing students opportunities to improve their teamwork skills and foster interprofessional learning. Healthcare professional students will also be eligible for 2 IPE credits for participating! Working with our community partner, we match 3 students from diverse professional programs with a senior in the community with shared interests or who could benefit from your particular set of skills. Our club offers programs that promote social connection through phone/video calls and other virtual activities such as online bingo, art classes, and more! This year, we will also address practical issues associated with isolation and community integration such as getting groceries, technology help, pharmacy pick up and more! Join us at Seniors Outreach to work with your peers and create meaningful connections with isolated seniors in our community.
