Strong Community-Academic Partnerships

Texas Area Health Education Centers East LogoThank you for visiting the East Texas Geriatric Education Center-Consortium (ETGEC-C) website. The ETGEC-C, in partnership with the Texas Area Health Education Centers East (Texas AHEC East), specializes in providing education and training efforts targeting all health professionals and students in health professions. Its purpose is to address health trends impacting older populations in medically underserved areas. These trends include changes in Medicare proposed due to health care reform, how society views aging and disease, and important updates on prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of disease.

Through the diligent work of our consortium partners the ETGEC-C has become an important resource for health providers to obtain continuing education, clinical training, and support to assure optimal care for older adults in a Texas region which is 85% rural and lacking in geriatric education opportunities.

We hope you find this site informative and useful whether you are a healthcare provider, student starting out in the healthcare field, or someone who is just interested in learning more about caring for older adults.
