Why attend an AGS Annual Meeting? Our community of AGS members and past attendees will give you plenty of reasons, and we're #AGSProud that our meetings are meaningful for everyone in different ways. Check out our Top 10 Reasons to attend our meeting below.
We are pleased to invite you to attend the 2021 Annual Scientific Meeting of the American Geriatrics Society (AGS)! The Annual Meeting Program Committee is currently planning for an in-person meeting May 13 – 15 (pre-conference day: Wednesday, May 12) in Chicago, IL. With continued uncertainty surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic and travel advisories and restrictions still in place in the U.S. and globally, we are also engaging in contingency planning in case we cannot hold an in-person meeting for #AGS21. If we cannot meet in-person, we will move to a fully online virtual annual meeting with both live and on demand options so that our members can safely learn and connect in ways that work for individual schedules.
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 2021 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 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 Chicago!
