Join GSA in Tampa for the Nation’s Premier Aging Conference!

The Gerontological Society of America (GSA) invites all journalists to attend its 2023 Annual Scientific Meeting — the country’s largest interdisciplinary conference in the field of aging — from November 8 to 12 in Tampa, Florida. Qualified media representatives intending to cover the meeting may register free of charge.

More than 3,000 professionals are expected to attend the five-day gathering at the Tampa Convention Center. The theme for 2023 is “Building Bridges > Catalyzing Research > Empowering All Ages,” and the program schedule contains more than 550 scientific sessions featuring experts sharing research that has never been presented before. Noteworthy meeting highlights include:

  • A wealth of story ideas: GSA offers direct access to leading authorities and new discoveries in gerontology. Explore the latest developments related to innovative technologies, Social Security and retirement, long-term care, human longevity, and much more. The meeting website offers a searchable program.
  • Keynote address: Journalist Frank Bruni will deliver the keynote address in the President’s Opening Plenary Session on Thursday, November 9. Bruni is a professor at Duke University, teaching media-oriented classes in the Sanford School of Public Policy. He has been a prominent journalist for more than three decades, including more than 25 years at The New York Times, where he was a White House correspondent, Rome bureau chief, and chief restaurant critic. Bruni is the author of four books that appeared on The New York Times Best Seller list, including most recently “The Beauty of Dusk.”
  • Networking opportunities: The Press Room, which serves as a base of operations for reporters, provides a venue for discussion about emerging issues on the aging beat. There will be a reception for reporters the evening of Friday, November 10.

The complimentary media registration allows access to all scientific sessions and the Exhibit Hall.

We look forward to seeing you in Tampa!
