With U.S. demographics shifting, an increasing number older adults will require care as they age. In an effort to develop a well trained workforce to care for our seniors, the U.S. Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) developed the Geriatrics Workforce Enhancement Program (GWEP). This important grant allows health and education institutions to develop programs that are responsive to specific interprofessional geriatrics education and training needs of their communities. In July 2015, HRSA awarded 44 grants in 29 states including a 3-year $2.45 M grant to Rush University Medical Center (RUMC) in Chicago, Illinois.
