Proposal Summary:

While students are currently learning about changes that occur as people age, it can be difficult for undergraduate college student to understand the experience of aging and develop empathy for patients who are older and have health impairments.

The purpose of this project is to engage students in learning about the experience of older adults by utilizing a first- person Virtual Reality (VR) training experience so students can demonstrate knowledge of psycho- physiologic changes and stressors affecting the health of older adults.
