Students for Geriatric Care
SGS is a student organization under the AzGS dedicated to encouraging students to become involved in service-oriented and awareness-raising activities related to geriatric care. The group has three primary goals:
(1) to encourage student participation in service to geriatric care patients;
This will manifest in community service opportunities at assisted living care facilities, community clinics, and special events hosted by various organizations, including the AZGeriatrics Society, with regard to geriatiric patients.
(2) to provide information, services and support for students seeking exposure to the field of geriatrics;
This will manifest in speaker series from various geriatric care professionals, including but not limited to geriatricians, caregivers, assisted living facility management, and more, as well as information about events hosted by the AZGeriatrics Society whereby students can participate.
(3) to encourage learning and growth in leadership.
This will manifest in various executive positions within the organization itself, as well as ample student-directed outreach opportunities with other organizations involved with geriatric care and awareness.
