Exhibit and Support

Dear Colleague:

We are pleased to invite you to attend the 2019 Annual Scientific Meeting of the American Geriatrics Society (AGS) from May 2 – 4 (pre-conference day: Wednesday, May 1) in Portland, Oregon. 

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.  The 2019 Annual Meeting 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 can update their knowledge and skills through state-of-the-art educational sessions and research presentations. 

The 2019 Annual Meeting offers many continuing education sessions, 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 wonderful opportunities to network and exchange ideas and information with colleagues.  The Presidential Poster Reception, Special Interest Group Meetings, Section Meetings for Fellows-in-Training, Nurses, Pharmacists, Social Workers, and Teachers are all great opportunities to interact with colleagues.

AGS staff is happy to answer any questions you may have about the meeting.  We look forward to seeing you in Portland!
