67th Annual Scientific Meeting

Note Earlier Dates! Wednesday, 11/5 to Sunday, 11/9
Washington, DC
Walter E. Washington Convention Center
Washington Marriott Marquis

The 2014 conference theme challenges researchers to present their best evidence on aging-related connections they investigate.

GSA's Annual Scientific Meeting brings together more than 4,000 of the brightest minds in the field of aging. This meeting is the premier gathering of gerontologists from both the United States and around the world. They participate in over 400 scientific sessions including symposia, paper, and poster presentations. The 2014 theme is “Making Connections: From Cells to Societies.” Gerontologists make and study connections in many aging-related areas. They assess unstable molecular bonds in cells and study enduring human ones in families. They test for relationships among variables and examine them among many community settings. Their research generates alliances that improve community services and policies for older adults and their families.

The 2014 conference theme challenges researchers to present their best evidence on aging-related connections they investigate, ranging from the smallest particles examined in the lab to the most macro-level issues examined globally. It challenges educators to evaluate the ties they establish with students and community groups and the links they develop between aging-related research findings and effective pedagogy. It challenges practitioners and advocates to translate science into best practices for aging adults, their networks, and communities.

Washington, DC, America’s capitol, provides a wonderful backdrop for our meeting. It’s a city of international prominence — facilitating connections on a global scale — and rich in history. And we’ll be gathering the same week that national elections are held, where changes in Congress could have a major impact on gerontological research and the programs and services that support the country’s aging population.

Earn Up to 29.5 Credits
Continuing education credits will be available for physicians (AMA Category 1), nurses (ANCC-COA), licensed clinical social workers (NASW), and psychologists (APA). Professional participants may be eligible to receive up to 29.5 credits depending on their profession and the sessions that they attend.

This Continuing Educational activity is jointly sponsored by The Annenberg Center for Health Sciences at Eisenhower and The Gerontological Society of America.
