Neurologic & Older Adult
A Journal Club is sponsored by the NOA
clinic for medical practioners interested in the
rehabilitation of older adults and those with neurologic
conditions. The purpose of the Journal Club is to critically review the
current literature on topics of particular interest to those treating these
patient populations and to encourage integration of this information into
patient care. The NOA Journal Club meets in McKinly Laboratory, Room 337, University of Delaware.
