“My main goal is to gain insight into as many positions as possible, and to be a helping hand for anyone.”

I am so excited and looking forward to shadowing you at the Ohio Department of Aging. I am very interested in shadowing as many positions as possible, so that I am able to narrow down what I would like to do with my gerontology degree. I am very interested in advocacy for older adults, and would love to be involved with that as much as possible. I am also very interested in the treatment and care for older adults with the diagnosis of Dementia or Alzheimer’s.

For my time spent at the ODA, I would be thrilled to be involved as much as possible, whether that is attending meetings, or helping out where needed. My main goal is to gain insight into as many positions as possible, and to be a helping hand for anyone.

I am very interested in shadowing positions that are held by employees who either solely have a gerontology degree or are in a position that would lend itself to one with a gerontology degree.  I know that this shadowing experience through the ODA will be very rewarding, and I hope that I can help out as much as possible with my time spent there over break.
