Welcome

We’re pleased to welcome you to the 2017 Annual Scientific Meeting of the American Geriatrics Society (#AGS17):
May 18-20 (pre-conference May 17) in San Antonio, TX.

The AGS Annual Scientific Meeting is the premier educational event in geriatrics, providing the latest information on clinical care, research on aging, and innovative models of care delivery. #AGS17 will address the educational needs of geriatrics professionals from all disciplines. Physicians, nurses, pharmacists, physician assistants, social workers, long-term care and managed care providers, health care administrators, and others will be able to expand their knowledge and skills through state-of-the-art educational sessions and research presentations.

#AGS17 offers many continuing education opportunities, including invited symposia, workshops, and meet-the-expert sessions. Sessions will include information about emerging clinical issues, current research in geriatrics, education, health policy, and delivery of geriatric health care.

Meeting attendees will have many opportunities to network and exchange ideas and information with colleagues. Attending the Presidential Poster Reception; Special Interest Group Meetings; and the Section Meetings for Fellows-in-Training, Nurses, Pharmacists, Social Workers, and Teachers are all ways great to interact with colleagues.

The AGS staff members are happy to answer any questions you may have about the meeting;
please feel free to contact them at 212-308-1414 or info.amger@americangeriatrics.org.

We look forward to seeing you in San Antonio!
