The University of Iowa Geriatric Education Centre has recently released their 2014 Geriatric Lecture Series Schedule. The theme for this year's presentations is Dementia and each month a new presentation will be released online to view during that same month.

In 2014, due to a generous grant provided by the Bureau of Health Professions of the Health Resources and Services, each presentation will be free to watch.   They do require registration, which can be done by visiting this site.
