AMARILLO – “Test Your Caregiver IQ,” part of the monthly military caregiving professional development webinar series offered through the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service’s Military Program, will be at 10 a.m. March 9.

The event is free and open to all who may be interested, but registration is required, said Andy Crocker, principal investigator and AgriLife Extension gerontology and health program specialist in Amarillo.

Rachel Brauner, co-principal investigator and program coordinator with AgriLife Extension’s Military Program in College Station, said the webinar will help participants find out how much they know about today’s caregivers.

The presenter will be Dr. Mary Brintnall-Peterson, owner of MBP Consulting and professor emeritus with University of Wisconsin – Extension.

“Your Caregiver IQ will highlight your overall understanding of who caregivers are, their similarities and differences, challenges and joys they experience and ways you can support them,” Brauner said.

The interactive session will provide a Q&A style format with participants, she said, and then will delve further into the necessary content brought up in the questions.

The webinars provide professional development and interactive resources for those who may not be able to leave their homes for training, Crocker said.

The Military Families Learning Network will provide certificates of completion for those interested in receiving training hours.
