The University of Louisville Trager Institute/Optimal Aging Clinic is excited to be hosting the 7th Annual CRIT program. CRIT reinforces the importance of interdisciplinary collaboration in caring for older adults. As such, this program is interdisciplinary in both content and attendees. CRIT provides the opportunity for Chief Residents, Program Directors, social work students, nursing students, chaplain residents, community workers, patients, and pharmacy residents to participate in interdisciplinary collaboration.

Although CRIT is a virtual event in 2023, the interactive and engaging nature of the program will be a mainstay. In reinforcing the importance of interdisciplinary collaboration in caring for older adults, this year’s program will provide attendees a variety of learning opportunities, including case study, lectures from experts, an action project, and networking opportunities.
