Our mission is to convene forums for current research and to provide tangible tools for professionals working in the interdisciplinary fields of gerontology, as well as for individuals interested in the topic of aging in our community. We do this through providing our members quarterly events, a bi-annual yearly conference and other unique networking opportunities.
