The Medical Subspecialties Section was developed in 2002 by the Association of Specialty Professors project “Integrating Geriatrics into the Specialties of Internal Medicine: Moving Forward from Awareness to Action,” funded by The John A. Hartford Foundation and Atlantic Philanthropies, Inc.
Members of the AGS Medical Subspecialties Section will provide updates on activities within their disciplines, thereby showcasing opportunities for subspecialists to advance the geriatrics agenda within their specialty societies and their institutions. In addition, we will discuss career development topics relevant to junior faculty pursuing aging research. All medical and surgical subspecialists are encouraged to attend. Breakfast will be served.
