Geriatrics Outreach Group (GOG)

The Geriatrics Outreach Group fosters interest in geriatric medicine and organizes the annual Senior Prom, a free event featuring live swing music, dancing, dinner, and intergenerational fun for students and St. Louis elders. Through social interaction and discussion lunch talks, medical students gain an understanding of the unique medical and social challenges faced by older adults. In addition, GOG partners with the Alzheimer’s Disease Research Center (ADRC) for the Dementia Understanding Opportunities program, which allows first year medical students to connect with an older adult in the community who has mild cognitive impairment.
