Nearly all older adults use medications and dietary supplements, with about half taking 5 or more medications. Used appropriately, medications can improve health and quality of life, prevent disease and prolong life. However, they can also cause medication-related problems, including side effects, drug interactions, ineffectiveness and dependence. All health care providers have a role in promoting rational medication use, and ensuring the best outcomes from drug therapy. This educational workshop will examine issues relating to medication use by older adults, and provide ideas on how to empower patients and families to promote rational use of medications and dietary supplements.

This mini-course focuses on the real community and personal impact of a public policy with sweeping national controversy, many deaths, and significant questions about social justice, racial discrimination, and even intent in the constitution. Because it is a mini-course, rather than a full course, this course will concentrate on one aspect of immigration policy, undocumented immigrants and the public policy strategy of enforcement for undocumented immigrants at the border and in the interior of the country. Along with discussion of the policies and practices of enforcement, we will bring local enforcement activities to the table and examine their impact on people, families, and Michigan communities. The discussion will have a global, national, state, and a local component. Students in this course will acquire the skills to critically analyze this aspect of immigration policy and its controversies. and about community and organization responses and activism.
