Interns play a vital role at Eskaton by making a positive impact on the lives of seniors. In this video, you can see how one Gerontology intern named Giovanna has utilized her skills to implement a senior project that brings technology to seniors with the help of high school students. If you have a passion for making a difference in the lives of seniors, you too can join over 300 college students who have been hosted by many departments throughout Eskaton to gain hands-on experience and make a real difference in the lives of seniors.
