The International Association of Gerontology and Geriatrics (IAGG) is the largest global organization on aging, gerontology, and geriatrics. It has 73 member organizations in over 65 countries worldwide across six continents. These international member organizations represent over 45,100 key opinion leaders in health and social services, housing and income support, research and education, public policy, administration, and other areas that impact older people and affect their quality of life. IAGG functions as a worldwide network and is governed by a council with representatives from each member society.
We are the oldest and largest interdisciplinary organization devoted to research, education, and practice in the field of aging. GSA’s principal mission - and that of our 5,500 members - is to advance the study of aging and disseminate information among scientists, decision makers, and the general public.
The Society, founded in 1945, is the driving force behind the advancement of gerontology both domestically and internationally. Our members come from more than 50 countries.
We foster collaboration between biologists, health professionals, policymakers, and behavioral and social scientists. We believe the intersection of research from diverse areas is the best way to achieve the greatest impact and promote healthy aging.
To further fulfill our mission, GSA assembles 4,000 professionals from around the world to an Annual Scientific Meeting. This monumental event now features over 500 sessions each year. Additionally, we publish the field’s preeminent peer-reviewed journals.
Through networking and mentorship opportunities, we provide a professional “home” for career gerontologists and students at all levels. We know these individuals are our legacy and it is crucial we foster those who follow in our footsteps.
*** This event is held every 4 years. ***
