Congresswoman Eshoo's support to reinstae funding for the continuation of certification in Gerontology at Foothill College is important for several reasons.
With seniors comprising our fastest and largest growing population the need for programs and professionals to serve seniors is crucial. Professional studies like Foothill College's Gerontology certification ensure the needs of seniors are being met by highly trained qualified gerontologists.
Students of gerontology came from various fields: medical, legal, social security, housing, care management, fitness, nutrition and many more.
At a time of job shortages the field of gerontology is growing making the need for education in the field necessary for those jobs to be filled.
Being Congresswoman Eshhoo is an advocate of seniors of the 12th District, the following constituents are petitioning her to support our efforts to continue serving seniors throughout the Bay Area and beyond by advocating for Foothill College to continue its program in Gerontology.
