Clinical Administrator of S-COPE, Lucille Esralew, PhD, and other gerontologists of the Trinitas S-COPE team will share the latest findings on physical health, mental health, mental and social wellbeing of seniors. Dr. Esralew explains, "In the past two years, S-COPE has gained a wealth of information about how people deal with aspects of aging. As a provider of crisis response and professional training to those who work with the aging population in the nursing home and assisted living settings, S-COPE is well positioned to help the general public gain a better understanding of the physical, mental and emotional health concerns associated with aging."
