Continuing Education

ACHS NEW   This Continuing Education activity is jointly provided by The Annenberg Center for Health Sciences at Eisenhower and The Gerontological Society of America.


Overall Conference Goal


The 2018 Annual Scientific Meeting of The Gerontological Society of America is organized to foster interdisciplinary interactions among clinical, administrative, and research professionals in the field of gerontological health care. In addition to the core scientific sessions, the presentation of pre-conference workshops and poster sessions will encourage and stimulate diverse viewpoints in geriatric health, research, and economics. There is a recognized need to disseminate this educational information to geriatric health care professionals to optimize the care of elderly patients. Upon completion of sessions, participants will be able to apply new knowledge and skills in the areas of clinical physiology, organ-specific systemic disorders, clinical pharmacology and therapeutics, geriatric syndromes, community services, acute and long-term care issues, health care professional education and research, as well as ethics and economics.

Others working in the area of geriatrics also will find the sessions of value and are encouraged to attend.
