The UNE Maine Geriatric Education Center
Federally funded by the Health Resources and Services Administration, The University of New England's Geriatric Education Center (UNE-MGEC) serves the entire state of Maine. It is located on UNE’s Portland Campus and is part of the UNE Westbrook College of Health Professions' School of Community and Population Health.
As one of several Geriatric Education Centers (GECs) nationally, the center works to ensure that the needs of Maine’s older adults and their families are met by serving as an important resource to health care professionals, health professions students and faculty, and community organizations.
We forge partnerships between academic communities and provide faculty development opportunities. We educate the men and women working in the health care fields in best practice geriatrics. And we increase awareness of the resources available to older adults.
