President Magruder appoints Head and Bordenave to Aging Program leadershipPosted: December 8, 2010
On December 6, President Jack Magruder announced the appointment of Janet Head, Ed.D., to the position of director of the ATSU Aging Project for the Missouri campus and the appointment of Elton Bordenave, M.Ed., to the same position on the Arizona campus.
Drs. Head and Bordenave are responsible for coordinating outreach programs and activities linking students with community elders and establishing links to community agencies that serve older populations in their respective communities. The new directors are also responsible for inter-disciplinary training for team approaches to elderly healthcare, as well as coordinating the campuses’ annual Lecture on Aging. Both will report to Michael Creedon, D.S.W., ATSU chairman for aging programs. The ATSU Board of Trustees established a Geriatrics Initiative several years ago to foster activities and training in the realm of elderly care, in response to the aging American population. These positions will provide additional leadership to continue to grow the program. “It is my pleasure to appoint Dr. Head and Dr. Bordenave as directors of the ATSU Aging Project,” Dr. Magruder said. “Much has been achieved over the years, but a stronger leadership capability is needed as we continue to develop our programs in this field. The appointment of these directors signals our commitment.”
