We believe that this Training Collaborative, under the direction of McGregor's highly-regarded Social Services Director, merits support. This unique opportunity allows McGregor to play a role in promoting extensive and quality field experiences that exposes students to the field of aging, with the potential to connect them with employment other senior-serving agencies. This is an important and critical role for McGregor.
