The AGS Annual Scientific Meeting is the premier educational event in geriatrics, providing the latest information on clinical care, research on aging, and innovative models of care delivery. The 2014 Annual Meeting will address the educational needs of geriatrics professionals from all disciplines. Physicians, nurses, pharmacists, physician assistants, social workers, long-term care and managed care providers, health care administrators, and others can update their knowledge and skills through state-of-the-art educational sessions and research presentations.
The 2014 Annual Meeting offers many continuing education sessions, including invited symposia, workshops, and meet-the-expert sessions. Sessions will include information about emerging clinical issues, current research in geriatrics, education, health policy, and delivery of geriatric health care.
Meeting attendees will have many wonderful opportunities to network and exchange ideas and information with colleagues. The Presidential Poster Reception, Special Interest Group Meetings, Section Meetings for Fellows-in-Training, Nurses, Pharmacists, Social Workers, and Teachers are all great opportunities to interact with colleagues.
Don’t miss this opportunity to interact with AGS members and meeting attendees in a relaxed environment that is conducive to the exchange of information.
Our Exhibit Program has progressed in the last few years, increasing not only in sheer number of exhibitors but also in diversity.
Healthcare professionals look to the AGS Annual Meeting as the primary source of current information on managing the complex, chronic health problems often faced by older adults. Annual Meeting Supporters and Exhibitors play a crucial role in helping the AGS present new knowledge and skills to professionals who are on the front lines of geriatrics research and clinical practice.
The top five reasons for your organization to get involved with the AGS Annual Meeting are:
1. Network with the leading professionals involved in the health and well-being of older adults
2. Distribute information regarding the latest treatment developments
3. Disseminate information to those who are in the “front line” of care for older adults
4. Identify current needs and issues in the industry
