Welcome to the Media Center for the 66th Annual Scientific Meeting of The Gerontological Society of America. This event will be held at the Sheraton New Orleans and New Orleans Marriott from November 20 to 24, 2013. On-site, the Press Room (located in the Sheraton) serves as a base of operations for reporters covering the meeting. Here media representatives network, conduct interviews, and consult with GSA's communications staff.
About the Meeting
The Gerontological Society of America's Annual Scientific Meeting is the nation's largest interdisciplinary conference in the field of aging. An estimated 4,000 professionals are expected to attend the five-day gathering in San Diego. The theme for 2013 is "Optimal Aging Through Research" and the program schedule contains more than 500 scientific sessions featuring research presented for the first time.
GSA extends complimentary registration to working representatives of the media. This includes reporters, editors, publishers, electronic media producers, columnists, bloggers, and other editorial communicators who reach general or specialized audiences on a regular basis with news reports or fact-based analysis.
GSA offers an online interactive Meeting Planner. Using this tool, you will be able to browse the program schedule of conference sessions by speaker, title, date, and time, or use the search feature to find abstracts by topic areas, presenters’ last names, and keywords. A mobile version also will be available.
