On Wednesday, May 24 Hokie Wellness will host the annual Elder Care Symposium. The full-day symposium is designed to help employees and students who are caring for an elderly loved one now, expect to be caring for an elderly loved one in the near future, or want to learn more about growing older.

Employees and their families are invited to attend the entire symposium or individual sessions. The event will begin at 8 a.m. in the auditorium of the Biocomplexity Institute of Virginia Tech.

Returning as the keynote speakers this year are Karen Stobbe and her husband Mondy Carter. In addition to Stobbe and Carter, there will be other presentations about caring for an elderly loved one.

Registration for the symposium is required and will open in April. Additional information, including the schedule of events and presentation topics, will be shared with employees via the daily email as it becomes available.

The Elder Care Symposium is presented by Hokie Wellness in partnership with Warm Hearth Village.
