For the first time, through a partnership with the University of Tennessee Chattanooga, the Foundation is offering continuing education credit for registered nurses, licensed practical nurses and masters of social work. These professionals can sign up to earn 1.5 contact hours or 0.15 CEUs with a cost of $25. Following the presentation, they will take a brief survey to earn the credit.

Hutchings is a geriatric neuropathology and dementia specialist. The seminar will touch on types of dementia and the difference between them, as well as genetic risks, treatment, stages of dementia and managing advanced symptoms. Live attendees will also have a chance to ask questions at the end of the session.

“This is an exciting opportunity for The Morning Pointe Foundation and Morning Pointe Senior Living,” said Miranda Perez, Foundation executive director. “We are passionate about education for our caregivers, and being able to further our associates’ professional careers this way is taking what we do to the next level. We are thankful to UTC for partnering with us for this opportunity.”
