Wednesday, October 25 from 3:30 pm - 5:00 pm
College of Health Professions, Room 1075

Want to learn how "improv" can serve your goals as a healthcare professional? Improv is just as relevant as "IRL" (in real life) as it is on stage. You don't have to be an actor! You don't have to be funny! Gerontologist John Countryman invites you to join him for his workshop, The Power of Play: Improv and Elderhood, an opportunity to learn some "applied" improvisation.
