AJAS Works on Certificate Program with
George Washington Univeristy

On October 26th, AJAS had the pleasure of meeting with 29 GW students as they spent nearly 5 hours at Seacrest Village (Encinitas, CA) with Pam Ferris and her team. As we look to educate them on the value based mission of Jewish sponsored elder care, we are hoping to attract their 3rd year students to do their residency at an AJAS community as we seek to grow and attract the next generation of elder care leadership.
