Welcome to our website! We, the members of the Missouri State Gerontology Club, invite you to join us. In keeping with the University’s public affairs mission, our organization provides leadership opportunities, culturally-and-diversity-enriching experiences, and community engagement projects. We extend club membership to anyone who wants to be involved in our mission of improving the well-being and quality of life for elders in the greater Springfield area. Not only will you be making a difference, you will form life-long friendships and build professional networks.
Members volunteer at various agencies/facilities in the Springfield area that provide services to older adults. Some volunteer locations include the Southside Senior Center, Northview Community Center, Creekside at Elfindale, Spring Ridge Assisted Living, Cambridge Retirement Community, Southwest Missouri Office on Aging, Springfield Rehabilitation and Health Care Center and Primrose Place.
The Gerontology Program sponsors the Missouri State chapter of SIGMA PHI OMEGA. This is a national Gerontology Honors Society of the Association for Gerontology in Higher Education.
Please come for the food and stay for the fun.
