GSA Annual Scientific Meeting – Gerontological Society of America
November 14 - November 18$750
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.
GSA’s scientific program is one of the most respected and competitive of its kind. While attendees have differing perspectives based on their areas of research – be they in basic sciences, clinical sciences, behavioral sciences, or social sciences – these perspectives provide complementary insights on how aging can be optimized.
The conference theme challenges researchers to highlight possible consequences of early life effects on aging, be it through biomedical events, nutrition, socioeconomic status, educational opportunities, stressful life experiences, or social relationships. The conference theme also challenges educators, both in the formal academic setting and in communicating with the general public, to transmit the importance of lifelong experiences and lifestyle choices on the process of aging.
