“Role Reversal: Caring for our Aging Parents” is the topic of Roseman University’s March Neighborhood Health Series. Sponsored by America First Credit Union, the presentation takes place from 4:30 to 6 pm on Thursday, March 17 at the Roseman University’s Summerlin campus, located at One Breakthrough Way, Las Vegas. The event is free and open to the public, however registration is required at speakers.roseman.edu or by calling 702-802-2872.
Dr. Lisa Rosenberg, director of geriatrics for Roseman University’s College of Medicine will discuss how to coordinate care, manage aging and the health challenges that come with it, and how to work together for happy and healthy lives.
“Shifting roles and family dynamics complicate what is already a difficult situation –
watching our parents age,” said Rosenberg. “Often we step in to help manage our parents healthcare, which leaves us with many questions and the need to learn, amidst our own needs and challenges.”
Roseman University’s Neighborhood Health Series are designed to bring the community together to learn, share and collaborate with physicians, researchers and other healthcare practitioners on issues related to health and well-being. Each month features an expert speaker from Roseman University on a variety of health care topics including navigating Medicare, dealing with high blood pressure, and coping with an aging parent.
Guests will also experience elements of Roseman’s six point Mastery Learning Model and will be invited to get to know other attendees, all while learning alongside members of southern Nevada’s most accomplished and talented medical community.
