Hartmann, Joyce; And Others
Papers and materials contributed by four panelists are provided from a panel presentation. "Unlocking Potential in Gerontology" (Theodore W. Wischropp) explains the make-up and organization of two consortia involved in the aging projects in Kansas, briefly describes three federally funded grants, and addresses some issues from the community college perspective for building coalitions and working with four-year institutions. "Community College Perspective" (Doug Radohl) discusses the community colleges' view of the impact of university-assisted curriculum development in gerontology. "The ABC's of Rural Delivery Systems" (Joyce Hartmann) deals with methods of reaching people and lists components of the best delivery systems. Attachments include a summary of module development for gerontological curricula in community colleges and a price list of the modules. "Program Development and Marketing Strategies" (Wilma L. Kelley) describes program development at Hutchinson Community College, which included a survey of the health care community and development of a community task force. Components of the marketing strategy are also summarized. A list of gerontology courses offered at member community colleges of the Western Kansas Community Services Consortium, a needs survey, and handouts are attached. (YLB)
