About the Paul R. Willging Endowment and Dr. Paul R. Willging

The Paul R. Willging Endowment has been established to provide both student scholarship support and enhanced learning opportunities in the areas of aging related services and long term care. Scholarships will provide financial assistance to those students pursuing careers that will positively impact older adults in the management and delivery of care to the older adult population. Enhanced learning opportunities will be provided to students, faculty, health care practitioners and policy makers in the area of aging related services.

This Endowment is designed to further Dr. Willging’s lifelong commitment to serve the long term care needs of seniors. Dr. Willging died in May 2011 following more than 35 years of extensive experience in health care policy and management. He was dedicated to assuring that the nation’s health care delivery system and its workforce would be fully prepared and well-positioned to meet those changing needs.

Dr. Willging brought this commitment to bear while holding the positions of President and CEO of the American Health Care Association, and with the Assisted Living Federation of America.  Toward the end of his professional career, he continued his focus on the special needs of older adults through his faculty assignments to The Johns Hopkins Center on Health and Aging, and the University’s School of Medicine. As a longtime resident of Howard County, he served on the Howard County Commission on Aging and contributed leadership to the Aging in Place Advisory Committee of the Howard County Office of Aging.

About the Speaker, Dr. Eric De Jonge

Dr. De Jonge, director of geriatrics and co- founder of the Medical House Call Program at the Washington Hospital Center is the Willging distinguished lecturer for 2014. Dr. De Jonge is on the teaching faculty at both Johns Hopkins and Georgetown Universities.

Dr. De Jonge has been named the National House Call Physician of the Year by the American Academy of Home Care Medicine. His special interest is in creating skilled and affordable care teams that help frail elders live with dignity at home. Prior to the passage of the Affordable Care Act, he helped develop and advocate for a national health care reform called "Independence at Home" (IAH) that advances home-based primary care for elders and reduce total Medicare costs. Dr. De Jonge will serve as the national program chair for the 2014 AAHCM annual meeting.
